Work at Height Regulations 2005


This 1/2 day awareness course is intended for all those working at height, their managers and supervisors. Falls from height are the single biggest cause of accidental death at work. Many fatal accidents involve relatively low heights and ladders are particularly dangerous if not used correctly.

The Work at Height Regulations 2005 require employers to avoid the need to work at height wherever possible, and to take measures to prevent falls and minimise harm where such work cannot be avoided.

In particular, other methods of access are preferred over ladders, which may only be used in limited circumstances. All work at height must be properly planned. Workers must be trained and competent.


Work at Height Regulations 2005

Planning Work at Height

Preferred Methods of Access - Scaffolding, Mobile Platforms, Towers

Safe Working on Scaffold Towers

Appropriate Use of Ladders

Ladder Selection & Inspection

Use of Harnesses



The aims and objectives of the Course are to ensure that you can demonstrate that you are competent to assemble, dismantle, alter, move, inspect and use mobile access towers without risk of personal injury to yourself, or anyone who may be affected by your work. It also intends to give an understanding of the legal issues affecting work at height with mobile access towers.

Entry requirements:

The course is intended to give guidance on best practice for the use of mobile access towers, where users have established that work at height cannot be avoided, that there is not an existing safe place to work, and thereafter have selected a mobile access tower as the most suitable work at heights equipment because of its inherent collective fall protection measures.
