Working at Height Awareness Course

“Working at height” covers any work which is at a level where there is risk of personal injury through falling, be it at, above, or even under, ground level. There is no minimum or maximum measurement when “working at height”.

This course is aimed at employees whose role, or part of their role, involves carrying out “work at height”. It helps businesses to comply with the Working at Height Regulations 2005 by providing employees with the necessary information they require.

Many construction workers have suffered a life changing injury as a result of a fall from height.
Work at Height is work at any height, above or below ground level, where a person could fall and be injured. For all work at height, training must be undertaken to prevent the risk of any fall that could cause injury.

This course can be completed at our training centre or we can deliver it onsite. It may also be completed with virtual training via zoom. This can be especially useful for group bookings.
