In 2014/15 falls from height accounted for nearly three in ten fatal injuries to workers (41 out of 142) and nearly 3,000 major injuries. Almost half of fatal falls took place in construction (20 out of 41 fatal fall injuries). Thus, they remain the single biggest cause of workplace deaths and one of the main causes of major injury. Any person who works at height places himself and others, in significant danger.
The aim of the course is to familiarise the candidates with the hazards and safety requirements of working at height (WAH).
Course content includes relevant topics such as legislation, hazards of working and falling from a height, ladders, scaffolds, mobile elevating working platforms (MEWP), inspections etc, and can be tailored to such most organisations.
