Working at Height Awareness

Working at height is defined as, “work in any place where, if precautions were not taken, a person could fall a distance liable to cause personal injury”.

You are working at height if you:-

  • work above ground/floor level
  • could fall from an edge, through an opening or fragile surface
  • could fall from ground level into an opening in a floor or a hole in the ground

All those who work at height must receive the appropriate level of training corresponding with the work they are carrying out. For example, a window cleaner working on a glass skyscraper will require a different level of training to that of a painter decorator using a stepladder to paint a bungalow.
