Falls from height remain the single biggest cause of work place fatality and major injuries in the construction industry. In an attempt to combat this, the Working at Height Regulations 2005 were introduced to provide a comprehensive set of regulations applying to all work at height activity.

As stated in the Working at Height Regulations, if work at height is unavoidable, duty holders must do all that is reasonably practicable to prevent anyone from falling, placing collective protection over mitigation options. This Hierarchy of Control Measures details the steps that should be followed when working at height.

Access and Scaffolding Best Practice is achieved by achieving Control in all work at height activity. Control is managed through proper organisation, planning and selection of appropriate equipment.

The first step to a safer work environment is training and educating people to change their attitude to safety in the workplace.
