Working at Height


Working at height can expose workers to particularly severe health and safety risks, and continues to be a major cause of death and serious injury. Employers have a duty to protect anyone who might be exposed to these risks by ensuring that any form of working at height is planned, supervised and carried out safely.

This basic working at height health and safety training course is specifically designed for anyone whose job requires them to work at height, and which involves them using the necessary height safety equipment to do this work safely.

This course can also benefit the supervisor responsible for those working at height and looking for a basic understanding to better appreciate the activity to control the process safely.

On completion of the Working at Height course, delegates will have the ability to assess the risks and requirements needed for safely working at height.

The Working at Height course will cover relevant issues in relation to working at height including:

  • Working at height legislation and guidance
  • A working at height risk assessment
  • Hierarchy of controls
  • Working at height equipment
  • Safe use of ladders and step ladders
  • Working at height rescue (overview)
  • Inspecting and wearing PPE

  • Course Material

    Each delegate will be issued with a workbook to assist them both during and after the course, which will contain information, guidance and forms to assist delegates. The Working at Height course is designed to be interactive, allowing delegates the opportunity to develop their skills with the support of the course tutor.
