Working at Height

Working at height covers all work undertaken at any level above what is normally regarded as floor level but there are times when you may need to rig lighting etc. and so will need to work at height.

You must undertake specific ladder training with one of the technicians before working at height and then make sure the work is properly planned, and supervised by a qualified technical member of staff or inducted competent person.
