Do I require training to carry out work at heights? 

The simple answer is YES! Here at Platinum Safety and Training, we make it easy when it comes to helping you decide what training you need in order to maintain a safe and compliant workplace!

As per legislation (law), the work health and safety act 2011 and regulations 2017, states all employers and employees have a duty of care to either eliminate or control potential hazards and risks within the workplace at all times. The hazard of height can be a major concern within many industries and unfortunately, is the cause of a high number of serious injuries and also workplace fatalities. 

Working at heights is simply defined as “if there is a risk of a fall from one level to another, that is likely to cause injury”.
