Online Working at Heights

It’s Not How Far You Climb, but How Far You Can Fall

This course is aimed at anyone who undertakes work at height, or who employs people who regularly work at height. The term work at height applies to a wide range of situations ranging from the obvious ones like working on platforms, ladders, scaffolds or stages to working alongside deep trenches.

‘Falls’ Doesn’t Just Mean People

If materials or equipment fall, that will obviously present an equally dangerous hazard to anyone below.  Thus online course  covers the health and safety legislation including the Work at Height Regulations 2005. These regulations confer legal duties on employers and employees to assess, control and minimise risks and hazards from work at height. This course also covers topics including the dangers of working at height, the hierarchy of controls, assessing risk and much more.

Our Online Working at Heights course may take you up to 105 minutes to complete. This duration is based on the amount of video content shown and is rounded off. It does not account for loading time or study time on the questions.
