Compliance Testing and Maintenance

The purpose of The Work at Height Regulations 2005 is to prevent death and injury caused by falls from height. Employers and those in control of any work at height activity must make sure work is properly planned, supervised and carried out by competent people.  This includes using the right type of equipment for working at height and the legal requirement to create and ensure a safe environment for personnel working at height.

Its estimated approximately 3 million people work at height in the UK.  Some are regarded as specialists who use equipment such as MEWPs, personal fall protection systems or are involved with erecting temporary edge protection, scaffolding, tower scaffolds, nets etc.  Others regularly work at height utilising equipment set up by others.  In its simplest form, competence for these incidental, occasional tasks, should involve a person having competence in:

  • Awareness of the risks
  • Correct access equipment and PPE to carry out the task safely
  • Training in using the safety system
  • Knowledge on how to look for possible defects in the system
