Working at Heights
“Work at height is work in any place, including a place at, above or below ground level, where a person could be injured if they fell from that place. Access and egress to a place of work can also be work at height.“ (Health and Safety Authority)
You will note that work at height does not depend on the actual working height.
All employers have a major responsibility for providing a safe and healthy workplace and systems of work for their employees. This includes developing procedures and providing training.
Did you know that over 700 Sales Assistants received Occupational Injury Benefit for accidents at work – they were the 2nd highest at risk category. Falls from height account for 5% of all accidents at work. (Health and Safety Authority).
