These are briefing notes on the Work at Height Regulations - and some of the things we reccommend you should be doing about them. Fall arrest equipment plays a small but vital part of this.

What is work at height?
Work at height is work in any place, including a place at, above or below ground level, where a person could be injured if they fell from that place.

Examples of work activities that are classified as working at height:
•Working on trestles
•Working on a flat roof
•Erecting formwork
•Working on a ladder
•Working at ground level adjacent to an excavation;
•Working on formwork within an excavation
•Working near or adjacent to fragile materials

Our key messages:
• Carry out risk assessments for work at height activities and make sure that all work is Planned, Organised and carried out by a competent person
• Follow the General Principles of Prevention for managing risks from work at height – take steps to avoid, prevent or reduce risks
• Chose the right work equipment and select collective measures to prevent falls such as guard rails and working platforms as well as other measures which help reduce the distance and consequences of a fall such as nets or airbags or may only provide fall-arrest through personal protection equipment.
