The Work at Height Regulations 2005
The Work at Height Regulations 2005, which came into affect in April 2005, apply to all work at height where there is a risk of a fall liable to cause personal injury. The creation of this one, comprehensive set of legal requirements for any work at height is intended to further serve the underlying principle that regulations should provide goal-setting objectives for management rather than prescriptive codes of practice, which can create unnecessary problems. They effectively remove the old 'two-meter rule' division between low and high falls of which there are more reported cases of major injuries resulting from 'low' falls than 'high'.
Essential Requirements: All work at height, including emergencies and rescue is properly planned and organised; All work at height takes account of weather conditions that could endanger health and safety; Those involved in work at height are trained and competent;
the risks from work at height are assessed (using the Risk Management Hierarchy) and appropriate work equipment is selected and used; The risks from fragile surfaces, falling objects and dangerous areas are properly controlled; Equipment for work at height is properly inspected and maintained; Places of work at height are inspected and checked on each occasion before use
Duty holders must ensure: Existing places of work and means of access for work at height collective fall prevention (e.g. guard-rails, toe boards and working platforms) collective fall arrest (e.g. nets, airbags etc) personal fall protection (e.g. work restraints, fall arrest and rope access)
ladders and step ladders inspection reports (for working platforms in construction only)
The Regulations include Schedules giving requirements for:
Risk Management Hierarchy: Avoid work at height where they can; use work equipment or other measures to prevent falls where they cannot avoid working at height; and where they cannot eliminate the risk of a fall, use work equipment or other measures to minimize the distance and consequences of a fall should one occur.
