HSE renews work at height guidance

Falls from height were the cause of most work-related fatalities in Britain during 2022/23, according to the latest figures from the Health & Safety Executive, with 40 workers killed in falls from height last year. 
To reduce injuries and fatalities employers can now use HSE’s latest guidance to ensure they take the necessary precautions to protect employees. 

HSE’s website also has a range of useful information and sources of advice for employers, including key messages to follow before working from height and some common work-at-height myths. 

There are also useful resources available, including relevant publications which are free to download, including: Introduction to working at height; common work at height myths; working at height - the law 
plus links to websites with advice on safe working at height.
