Work at Height Training

Am I working at height?

DSCF0077 320x240 Work at Height TrainingForget the “2 metre rule” or any such thing.  The HSE now defines ‘at height’ as follows:
“A place is ‘at height’ if a person could be injured falling from it, even if it is at or below ground level.”

The ‘Work at Height Regulations’ also place a responsibility on Employers to ensure that:
“Those involved in work at height are trained and competent.”

So, with decades of experience of working at height we can help. From the basics of wearing and looking after a harness to an in depth understanding of regulations we have this area fully covered.
