Working At Heights Training Course
When working at heights, falling is a major issue for concern amongst employers and it continues to be one of the biggest causes of fatal and serious injuries in the workplace.
A work place is at a height when the person could be injured if they were to fall from it even when at or below ground level.
The Work At Height Regulations 2005 requires that all work at a height must be properly planned and that those carrying it out are trained and competent to safely undertake the task.
Our Working At Heights course ensures that you fulfil your statutory duty in keeping employees safe and compliant to reduce the risk of a fall.
This comprehensive online health and safety training covers safe working at height practices and the safe use and maintenance of any working at height equipment in accordance with the HSE's Work At Height Regulations.
