Safe Working at Heights

Contour Training offers Safe Working at Heights courses accredited by NPORS.


The Work at Height regulations 2005 came into effect on 6th April 2005. The regulations apply to all work at height where there is a risk of a fall liable to cause personal injury. They place duties on employers, the self-employed and any person that controls the work of others (eg facilities managers or building owners who may contract others to work at height).

 

As part of the regulations, duty holders must ensure:

  • All working at heights is properly planned and organized
  • Those involved in working at heights are competent
  • The risks from working at heights are assessed and appropriate work equipment is selected and used
  • The risks from fragile surfaces are properly controlled
  • Equipment for working at heights is properly inspected and maintained
