Do You Comply With The Work At Height Regulations?

The Work at Height Regulations 2005 came into force on 6 April 2005. These Regulations replace all earlier regulations about working at height, and implement the European Council Directive 2001/45/EC which specifies minimum safety and health requirements for the use of equipment for work at height.

The main duties under the Work at Height Regulations 2005 are:

  • All work at height is to be properly planned and organized.
  • Employees must follow any safety training and instructions given to them.
  • The risks of working at height must be assessed to ensure appropriate work equipment is selected and used.
  • Employers must ensure that all their workers are trained and competent before beginning any work at height and safe systems of  work must be in place.

The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 requires your company by law to provide a safe and healthy environment for all your employees.​
The Work at Height Regulations 2005 is to prevent death and injury caused by a fall from height. If you are an employer or you control work at height than the Regulations apply to you.​​
