Get in Touch
Is a risk assessment required for work at height?
Yes, work from height tasks require a risk assessment. Manual work at height should only be undertaken if there is no other option and it should be planned appropriately to avoid any unnecessary health and safety risks. Only people qualified and trained to work at height should be assigned this work.
What are the hazards of working at height?
The hazards of working at height include anything that makes a fall more likely. This includes poor weather conditions, poor maintenance of working at height tools such as ladders and harnesses, unprotected roof spaces or lack of training for the people carrying out the work. It is the employer’s responsibility to control them.
At what height do I need to wear a harness?
Current guidelines state that a harness should be worn if a fall of 6 feet or more is possible. However, employers can provide a harness for smaller heights than this if they feel it would be safer. If a worker would like a harness for a job, it is good practice to provide them with one.
