With over £0.5m in fines and costs for Working at Height breaches in July, are you meeting your responsibilities? Image

In July 2015, individuals and organisations found to have failed to meet Work at Height legislation requirements were fined and ordered to pay costs totalling over £0.5m.

Seven cases were reported by the HSE where proper Health and Safety was not in place, including four resulting in the deaths of workers, two cases of life changing injuries, and one case where lives were put at risk.

The total fines and costs related to the seven cases reported by the HSE in July were £576,376.90.

All businesses have a legal responsibility to ensure the correct training is undertaken before any Work at Height takes place, something DeltaNet can help with, with our responsive Working At Height Essentials course, designed to provide an overview for all employees likely to work at height - including on footstools - and our Working At Height Advanced eLearning course, which covers working at height at an industrial level including construction.
