“Any work on, below, or above ground level where there is risk of personal injury through falling and/or a potential risk to people below the work site being injured by falling objects.”
Why is training required?
Anybody working at height must comply with the Working at Height Regulations. The Working at Height Regulations stipulates that we must avoid working at height where possible. Employers must do all that is reasonably practicable to prevent anyone falling.
Before you think about putting on a harness, you must be trained.
Improper use of a harness can cause serious injury or death.
Many people cannot fit a harness properly which leaves them at risk while at work. Every employer shall ensure that no person engages in any activity, including organisation, planning and supervision, in any relation to working at height or work equipment for use in such work unless he/she have being trained.
