This manual is designed to be an easy to understand practical guide to working safely at height in the workplace. Accidents often occur from low level falls, such as from less than one metre, therefore it is aimed at all staff who are likely to undertake any work at height and any contractors who may work on site.
It is used for staff inductions, training, refresher training and also provided to contractors who come onto company premises to undertake work.
The manual format is A5, 16 page, full colour, clearly written and illustrated and includes a Check Your Knowledge section to test understanding.
