Working at height remains one of the main causes of serious workplace injuries.

As a result the Working at Height Regulations 2005 were written. They have been written to prevent the deaths and injuries that are caused each year by falls at work. The regulations apply to employers, sole traders and anyone who works at height where there is a risk of a fall liable to cause personal injury. It contains details of what needs to be done to comply with the regulations.

If you have a fall at work and sustain an injury as a result of your employer not complying with the regulations they will be in breach of the regulations and liable to pay you compensation.

The regulations are very detailed and explain what is meant by working at height, it also details who the regulations apply to and what sort of planning and risk assessments should be carried out in relation to working at height.
