Working at Heights Awareness
One of the biggest causes of injuries and fatalities is from working at heights, falling from ladders and through fragile surfaces being the commonest cases.
The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) describes Working at Height as “work in any place where, if there were no precautions in place, a person could fall a distance liable to cause personal injury (for example a fall through a fragile roof).”
Work needs to be properly planned, supervised and carried out by competent, skilled individuals who have the knowledge and experience to do the job.
