Falls from height are the leading cause of fatal accidents and serious injury in the UK workplace today. And you don’t have to be working on a roof for this to apply to you… two thirds of all major injuries occur at low levels of two metres or less!
The good news is, most work at height (WaH) accidents are avoidable. By recognising risks and adopting safe practices, you can ensure you take a grounded approach to work at height!
Nimble’s new course Working at Height Essentials has everything you need to help your teams become more aware of the risks involved in work from height and ways to minimise those risks.
The elearning is delivered through three topics:
Assessing the risk gives learners information and examples of how to assess risks, taking consideration of the person at work, the equipment used, access, and environmental surroundings.
An assessment is included at the end of the course, giving learners the reassurance that they have absorbed the key messages.
“Not recognising when we’re working at height is a major cause of injury, as we fail to apply measures that would otherwise keep us safe. This course helps you identify, prepare for, and execute work at height as safely as possible.” – Shaena, Learning Design Team at Nimble
