Injuries are in the thousands, and while people might assume that they are not in much danger while working at low levels on a ladder, those falls can make up a large number of these injuries. RIDDOR statistics released before the Work at Height Regulations 2005 showed that 60% of falls recorded were “low falls” from below head height.
This course is designed for those personel who work at height and are required to use a range of Harnesses and Lanyards while working at height.
