Work At Height Medicals

Occupational Health

Work At Height Medicals

The HSE define Work at height as working in any place where, if there were no precautions in place, a person could fall a distance liable to cause personal injury. For example you are working at height if an employee is

  • working on a ladder or a flat roof
  • could fall through a fragile surface
  • could fall into an opening in a floor or a hole in the ground.

To help you comply with Work at Height Regulations (WAHR) Our qualified Occupational Health professional can carry out medicals to establish if any pre-existing medical conditions or prescribed medication is likely to have an effect on the person’s ability to work at height. We can also help by recommending control measures or support provision so that you can ensure compliance with HSW Act 1974 and MHSW Regulations.

As with most of our services, these can be at your workplace or our offices in Wootton Bassett. If it’s only a handful of people or individuals then our office works well otherwise it makes sense to arrange at your workplace.
