Working at Height

An interactive and engaging online course on working at height for employees.

How it works

As part of our Working at Heights online training learners will use interactions to help understand and recognise the hazards of working at heights, this RoSPA assured Height awareness course also has a complete section on using ladders and step ladders safely.

Employers and those in control of any work at height activity must make sure work is properly planned, supervised and carried out by competent people. This includes using the right type of equipment for working at height. (Low-risk, relatively straightforward tasks will require less effort when it comes to planning).

Employees also have general legal duties to take reasonable care of themselves and others who may be affected by their actions. They need to co-operate with their employer to enable their health and safety duties and requirements to be complied with.

* This eLearning only provides awareness education. Face to face training would be needed in addition in order to complete the all round skills and knowledge to be able to carry this forward practically in your organisation.
