Working at Heights Training/Harness Awareness
Falling from height continues to be a major cause of serious injuries and many deaths around the UK. Workers who consistently work at heights must comply with the Working at Heights Regulation 2005. It states that working at heights must be avoided. However if it is necessary, proper equipment must be used and training must be taken before carrying out any height-related duties. Failure to comply with these standards can lead to serious consequences for employers.
