Height Safety Tips

Our experts are all qualified professionals, aware of all appropriate regulations and safety steps you can follow to keep your staff and yourself safe.

Here are their top 3 tips to ensuring height safety while at work:

Avoid working at heights

1. Avoid working at heights.
This might sound obvious, or impractical for some businesses, but it is best to minimise the amount of time staff spend working at height. The less time spend elevated, the less likely they are to face a workplace accident.

Wear proper footwear at all times

2. Wear proper footwear at all times.
All staff working at height should be wearing appropriate footwear which fits, has an anti-slip sole and gives good balance while working at height.

Keep all surfaces dry

3. Keep all surfaces dry.
If there is a small amount of water on a ladder, on the floor or in the wider workplace, the chances of falling from height greatly increase. Make sure there is no water, oil or other liquids putting your staff in jeopardy.
