Do You Need Working at Height Training? See our courses

Here at Element Safety Ltd we offer a range of working at height training to suit your needs. With various options available such as having your working at height training at our training center in Sheffield or us coming to you.

What is Working at Height?

The boring longer legal definition is at the bottom of the page.

First, we have a simple question to help you identify if you are ‘working at height’ and if you, or your team, require training.

Is work being undertaken in any place where, if there were no precautions in place, a person could fall a distance liable to cause personal injury?

Training can be from awareness and management in order to avoid working at height; skills, equipment and discipline to reduce the risk, likelihood or harm; and must include ensuring others around you are safe too!

If you’re interested in any of our courses, then please get in touch.

Some examples of work at height are

  • working on a ladder or a flat roof;
  • where you could fall through a fragile surface;
  • where you could fall into an opening in a floor or a hole in the ground

If you have answered ‘YES’ to this question, you are working at height, and you and your team require Work at Height Training.

Even if you may not be harmed, we must consider those around us.

We provide a number of different level height courses which are split into a number of categories:

On The Ground

You are not going near an edge, you can’t fall and hurt yourself…

And you can’t drop anything on anyone else, then you are NOT working at height.

But you need to know what a work at height is so you can manage or avoid it!

The space has some issues and relies on freedom of movement at height. There is a good chance that if things go wrong, a rescue team will be needed to help!

Is work being undertaken in any place where, if there were no precautions in place, a person could fall a distance liable to cause personal injury?

If you answered ‘NO’ to the question, you may still need to adopt some good practices when working in your space.

Despite your answer – you need to ask the “what if…?” question(s).

If the team need immediate help, you may need to plan, train and equip your personnel to rescue their colleagues in an emergency.

Element Safety can provide everything you need to comply with the regulations and keep you, and your team, safe.

Work at Height Definition [The boring bit]

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.

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 state:

“You must carry out a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risk for all work activities for the purpose of deciding what measures are necessary for safety”.

Whether you work on scaffolding, tower cranes, embankments, buildings, ladders … your safety and that of those around you is of paramount importance.
