Working At Height Medicals

Working at Height Definition

The HSE define Working 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

What is a Working at Height Medical?

To help you comply with Work at Height Regulations (WAHR), our qualified Occupational Health professional can carry out Working at Height 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.

The outcome of attending a Working at Height medical assessment is a Working at Height medical certificate which allows the individual to demonstrate their medical fitness for working at height.

How can I Arrange a Working at Height Medical for myself or for my employees?

As with most of our services, these can be at your workplace or our offices in Royal Wootton Bassett near Swindon. If it’s only a handful of people that require working at height medical assessments or just yourself, then our office works well, otherwise it makes sense to arrange at your workplace.

Complete one of the contact forms on this page or call the office on 01793 852951 to arrange your Working at Height medical now.
