Work at Height (steps and ladders)

10 May 2024

Many employees across several industry sectors count working at height as one of their duties. Whether using a ladder or step ladder, knowing how to work at height safely and effectively is vital, not to mention a key responsibility for managers and employers when safeguarding their workers. For organisations looking to give their workforces the knowledge and support they need to work at height with confidence, in-house or visiting trainers are crucial parts of the puzzle. That’s where our Work at Height Train the Trainer course comes in!

As a leading provider of workplace safety training for trainers looking to pass on vital information and skills to employees, our Work at Height program remains a fundamental and popular part of our offering. So, what can you expect when enrolling onto our Work at Height Train the Trainer and why is ensuring the necessary training in this area important for all?

The importance of work at height training

Work at height training reduces the risks of working above the ground to prevent accidents and injuries. With the right training at their disposal, individual employees can take charge of assessing height-related risks, implement the relevant controls and safety equipment, and get on with the job of working at height as safely, securely and confidently as possible.

It is also important to note that providing adequate work at height training is a legal requirement for UK employers, who must take steps to remain compliant with The Work at Height Regulations 2005.
