What is Work at Heights?
Work at heights is defined as work:
- in an elevated workplace from which a person could fall,
- near a floor opening through which a person could fall,
- near an open edge over which a person could fall,
- on a fragile surface through which a person could fall, or
- in any other place (whether above or below ground) from which a person could fall from one level to another and the person or other person would be injured due to the distance of the fall.
Working at heights can result in serious workplace injuries and even death, if the necessary safety measures are not in place.
