Working At Height Risk Assessment
Under the Work at Height Regulations 2005 all employers who have workers performing activities, at any height and for any duration, have a legal duty to ensure an adequate working at height risk assessment has been completed. They must then take practical steps to reduce the risk of their workers falling while carrying out work at a height.
Following the regulations, it is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that an adequate working at height risk assessment has been carried out. In the event that an adequate assessment has not been conducted, and the Work at Height Regulations 2005 have been breached, then the employer will be held liable. This can result in heavy fines or even jail terms. To avoid this, arrange a working at height risk assessment now.
