Falls are the largest cause of accidental death in the construction industry. They account for 50% of all fatalities. There is no distinction between low and high falls. This means that for any work at height; precautions are required to prevent or minimise the risk of injury from a fall. This course is intended to provide basic information for anyone managing; carrying out or affected by work at height. It does not cover the specialised skills required to carry out specific tasks; these must be dealt with by other training. Work at height accounts for the greatest number of fatalities in construction but can be minimised by sensible precautions to prevent falls or injuries from tools and materials dropping onto people working or moving below.
