Working at Height


working at heightWithin the UK all work at height tasks must conform to The Work at Height Regulations 2005, which is a statutory instrument created under The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. Companies wishing to work at height must ensure that they take all reasonable steps to protect the health and safety or their employees and of any persons who may come into contact with them, their work or their working practices.
