Working at Height Online Course Description

RoSPA Approved

This online course is aimed at anyone who undertakes to work at height, or who employs people who regularly work at height.

The term “working at height” applies to a wide range of situations ranging from the obvious ones like working on platforms, ladders, scaffolds, or stages, to working alongside deep trenches. This is because the crucial thing to understand about working at height is that it’s not how far you climb, but how far you can fall. ‘Fall’ doesn’t just mean people falling from heights. If materials or equipment fall, that will obviously present an equally dangerous hazard to anyone below.

All working-at-height situations are covered by health and safety legislation. Chief among these is the Work at Height Regulations 2005. These regulations confer legal duties on employers and employees to assess, control, and minimise risks and hazards from working at height.

This online working at height training course covers topics including the dangers of working at height, the regulations, the hierarchy of controls, assessing risk, and much more.

It’s vital to understand all this because as I’m sure you’ll know, working at height can be extremely dangerous.

Please note that this is an awareness course only, if your duties include working at height you will also need further practical training and possibly a working at height medical. You can get in touch with us to arrange training or a working-at-height medical assessment.
