Working at Height

The Work at Height Regulations 2005 came into force on 6th April 2005 and apply to all situations where there is a risk of a fall which is liable to cause personal injury or even death. The Work at Height Regulations place requirements on employers, the self-employed and any person that controls the work of others.

As Part of the Regulations you must ensure the following:

-all work at height is properly planned and organised;

-those involved in work at height are competent;

-the risks from work at height are assessed and appropriate work equipment is selected and used;

-the risks from fragile surfaces are properly controlled; and

-equipment for work at height is properly inspected and maintained.

There is also a simple hierarchy for managing and selecting equipment for work at height and you must:

-avoid work at height where they can;

-use work equipment or other measures in order to prevent falls where they cannot avoid working at height; and

-where they cannot eliminate the risk of a fall, use work equipment or other measures to minimise the distance and consequences of a fall, should one occur.
