    Frequently Asked Questions

    Under the The Work at Height Regulations 2005 your employer is obliged to:

    • Consider every aspect of your work and avoid the need for work at height wherever possible
    • Carry out a careful risk assessment for any work at height that can’t be avoided
    • Provide the most appropriate equipment to carry out any work at height
    • Provide suitable training to you and any colleagues involved in any work at height

    We have been involved “fall from height” claims in lots of situations:

    Falls from ladders
    Ladders are a seemingly straightforward piece of equipment, but they are often unsuitable for working at height and can be very dangerous if not used with great care.

    Falls from large machines
    Machine operators and maintenance workers are often asked to work at height in very dangerous conditions on large pieces of industrial plant and machinery.

    Falls from HGVs, trailers and loading bays
    Often have large exposed falls. Drivers and warehouse staff are often asked to work in very dangerous conditions.

    Falls from roofs
    Some workers are asked to work on high roofs where the edge is not properly guarded. Others are asked to work on roofs which are not designed to be walked on at all.

    Falls from scaffolding
    Constructing a scaffold tower is a skilled occupation but many workers are asked to build or dismantle scaffolds without any training and this is a frequent cause of accidents where workers fall from unguarded platforms, or where scaffolds collapse altogether.

    Falls whilst carrying equipment and materials
    Workers often fall whilst climbing ladders or scaffolds because they have been asked to carry tools or materials whilst climbing.
