Working at Height: Basic Ladder Safety

Thu 30 Apr 2020


Falls from ladders and other height access devices continue to cause injuries to people at work in the University. The new Work at Height Regulations (April 2005) have implications for the University because the emphasis has changed to any fall from any height. Anyone who uses ladders or who supervises work with ladders should attend this session.

Available to deliver in departments and colleges, see Unscheduled events for more details.
