Work at Height Regulations - Training Pack

Falls are still the biggest killer on conctruction sites, says the British
Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Therefore they have published a labour
inspector training pack for work at height regulations.

The key messages are:


  • Those following good practice for work at height now, should already be doing
    enough to comply
  • Those who plan and organise work at height and follow risk assessments will
    generally already comply
  • Those following the hierarchy for managing risk from work at height namely
    avoid, prevent or mitigate risks will already comply
  • Those choosing the right equipment for the job will already comply

The presentations contain:

Part 1 & 2: The background to the Regulations, where they came from, why they
are important. What the Regulations mean. [PDF 950kb]

Part 3: What the Regulations require from duty holders. Examples of good and
