Falling from height
Falls from a height whilst at work can lead to very serious injuries.
The Work at Height Regulations 2005 aim to ensure that your employer should do all they can to avoid the need for employees to work at height. However, it is not always the case that employees can avoid working at height. Therefore, an employer should ensure that they do all they can supervise work at height and provide appropriate equipment.

You are at risk of a fall from height if you work in the following industries:
