Working at Height Online Training

With falls of less than 2 metres causing fatal injury, it is a key responsibility of employers to provide working at height training to employees. Phoenix’s online course facilitates this responsibility, minimising workplace risk.

What is Phoenix's Working at Height Training?

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, with 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, minimising the risk that comes from working at height in the workplace. 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.
