According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) “work at height is the biggest single cause of fatal and serious injury in the construction industry, particularly on smaller projects”. Falls account for more than 60% of deaths that result from work at height accidents and these are usually:
- from ladders, scaffolds, working platforms and roof edges
- through fragile roofs or roof lights
Suitable for anyone who may be required to work at height in the construction industry or who is responsible for risk assessments in the workplace, this working at height course could help save lives.
