Any individual who in any part of their job needs to 'work at height' needs to undertake Working at Height Training. Work at height can be defined as any place where an individual could potentially fall and cause injury to themselves.
Manual handling is one of the most common causes of injury at work and causes over a third of all workplace injuries which include work related Musculoskeletal Disorders such as upper and lower limb pain/disorders and various joint and repetitive strain injuries.
