Falls from height are one of the biggest causes of fatalities and serious injuries in the workplace, resulting in the deaths of 25 workers in Britain in 2016/17 alone. As a result, UK employers have strict duties under health and safety law to prevent anyone at work falling a distance that could injure them.

This 20-page guide will explain what your organisation can do to avoid worker falls from height. The range of topics covered includes:

  • What the law says on falls from height
  • General precautions
  • A guide to roof work
  • Working platforms
  • Safety inspections
  • Ladders and stepladders
  • Tanks and pits.
