Working at Height
What is Working at Height?
Any work on, below, or above ground level where there is risk of personal injury through falling and/or a
potential risk to people below the work site being injured by falling objects.
Why do we need Working at Height Training?
Anybody working at height must comply with the Working at Height Regulations 2005. The Working at
Height Regulations stipulate that we must avoid working at height where possible. Employers must do
all that is reasonably practicable to prevent anyone falling.
“Every employer shall ensure that no person engaged in any activity, including organisation, planning
and supervision, in any relation to working at height or work equipment for use in such work unless he is
competent to do so or, if being trained, is being supervised by a competent person.”
Total Access (UK) Limited carries out Working at Height training for a wide range of industries including:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Wind Turbine
Telecommunications

Stage & Theatre
Scaffolding

Confined Spaces
What is a Confined Space?
A confined space is any space including vessel, chamber, tank, silo, pit or other similar space that
is largely enclosed (not always entirely) that contains a foreseeable specified risk of serious injury.
A ‘specified risk’ can be any of the following:
• Fire or explosion causing serious injury
• Gas, fume, vapour or lack of oxygen causing loss of consciousness
• Increase in body temperature causing loss of consciousness
• Increase in the level of liquid causing drowning
• Free flowing solids causing asphyxiation
Why do we need Confined Space Training?
In 1997, Confined Space Regulations were introduced in order to improve safety in Confined
Spaces. It is now enshrined in law that anyone involved with entering, controlling or
supervising people working in a confined space must have received training. Failure to comply
with these Regulations can result in prosecution.
People are killed or seriously injured in confined spaces every year in the UK. This includes a large
number of people trying to rescue others without sufficient training or equipment. A hierarchy
of control must be considered prior to commencing work. The first point to consider is, can the
work be done another way to avoid entry?
The Confined Space Regulations state the following:
•
•
•
Avoid entry to confined spaces e.g. by doing work from outside
If entry to a confined space is unavoidable, follow a safe system of work
Put in place adequate emergency arrangements before the work starts
The main danger is an untested atmosphere which may be oxygen deficient or contain
atmospheric contaminants. Your brain will be unable to identify these dangers and a
Gas Detector or Atmospheric Monitor MUST be used.
