Working at Height Awareness – Online Course

Working at Height Awareness Course Overview:

Our full suite of interactive video-based online courses can be white labelled and distributed by you.

The term work at height applies to a wide range of situations ranging from the obvious ones like working on platforms, ladders, scaffolds or stages to working alongside deep trenches. This is because the crucial thing to understand about work at height is that it’s not how far you climb, but how far you can fall. ‘Falls’ doesn’t just mean people falling from heights. If materials or equipment fall, that will present an equally dangerous hazard to anyone below.

All working at height situations are covered by health and safety legislation. Chief among these is the Work at Height Regulations 2005. These regulations confer employers and employees’ legal duties to assess, control, and minimise risks and hazards from work at height.
