According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) ” Working at height remains one of the biggest causes of fatalities and major injuries. Common cases include falls from ladders and through fragile surfaces. ‘Work at height’ means work in any place where, if there were no precautions in place, a person could fall a distance liable to cause personal injury (for example a fall through a fragile roof).”

In 2013/14 falls from height were the most common cause of fatalities, accounting for nearly three in ten (29%) fatal injuries to workers (RIDDOR – Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences ).

    Thought the course was an excellent alternative to taking people out of the business for extended periods of time to be trained. Unfortunately it is a presentation that doesnt have any narrative and I found the answers to some of the questions a little strange to say the least. That said will be putting my team through it in the near future.
