Working at Height

Working at height is often unavoidable in the construction industry. Whether installing stone via a scaffold, surveying and restoring facades from mast climbers and abseils, or even working on and from vehicles and MEWPs, our operatives are exposed to the dangers of working at height. Falling from height is the most common cause of workplace death in the construction industry after work related illness, and dropped tools and objects are the second largest cause of fatalities in the UK workplace. It is therefore unsurprising that the Working at Height Regulations 2005 were brought in to achieve new benchmarks for working at height and increasing operative safety. As a company Szerelmey take our working at height operations very seriously. Where collective fall protection and the elimination of hazards is not possible, we aim to create a positive health and safety culture and constantly review our procedures and safety equipment.
