Our working at heights online course enables employers to minimise risk in their organisation by providing employees with relevant training and information.
The Work at Height Regulations 2005 define “working at height” as work in any place in which a person could fall far enough to cause injury if no precautions were in place. Even falls less than 2 metres can result in serious or fatal injury.
Falls from height are the third-highest cause of fatal injury in the workplace. Phoenix’s Working at Height training course enables employees to learn how to keep themselves and others safe. It also allows you to fulfil your legal obligations as an employer, show your commitment to the health and safety of your staff, and avoid the significant fines for employers that can result from accidents in the workplace.
