8. Working at Heights
Working at height remains one of the biggest causes of fatalities and major injuries, for this reason BHS&S provides a solution by offering a training that suits your need. Common cases include falls from ladders and through fragile surfaces. ‘Work at height’ means work in any place where, if there were no precautions in place, a person could fall a distance liable to cause personal injury (for example a fall through a fragile roof).
First assessing the risks, height of the task, the duration and frequency, and the condition of the surface being worked on, are some of the control measures that should be taken into considerations.
