All employers must ensure that their staff are appropriately trained in order for them to carry out their work efficiently. The Work at Height regulations require employers and employees to ensure that sufficient risk assessment is carried out, so that potential height risks can be identified, controlled and managed.

The Working at Height Regulations 2005 apply to all instances of working at height where there is a risk of a fall liable to cause personal injury. A place of ‘height’ is somewhere that if precautions were not taken, a person could fall a distance liable to cause personal injury.
