Working at Heights Online

RoSPA Approved

Our RoSPA approved online working at heights course is aimed at anyone who undertakes work at heights, or who employs people who regularly work at heights.

The term ‘work 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. ‘Falls’ doesn’t just mean people falling from heights. If materials or equipment fall, that can be an equally dangerous hazard to anyone below.

All working-at-height situations are covered by the 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 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, you can get in touch with us to arrange this.
