Work Injury Claims

Falls from Height

Thousands of accidents occur each year where employees have been working at height on ladders, scaffolding or work platforms. To tackle this problem the Work at Height Regulations 2005 were introduced in April 2005 and were later updated in 2007 to offer even more protection to employees.

    These Regulations apply to all work at height situations where there is a risk of a fall which is likely to result in personal injury. They place duties on employers to ensure that they must make every effort to avoid work at height where they can. If it cannot be avoided they must use work equipment or other measures to prevent falls and to minimise the distance and consequences of a fall should the worst happen.

    Employers must make sure that:

    • all work at height is properly planned and risk assessed;
    • employees are properly trained;
    • suitable work equipment is selected and used;
    • any equipment for work at height is properly inspected and maintained, both before and during use.
