Falls from height, a major cause of accidents

Falls from height remains one of the major causes of accidents reported to RIDDOR. To help reduce the number of casualties, the Work at Height Regulations (2005) identified a list of duty-holders who have a responsibility to ensure end-user height safety. These duty-holders are:

  • Architect/Designer
  • CDM Coordinator
  • Client/Building Owner
  • Facilities/Property Manager
  • Health and Safety Manager
  • Principal and Sub-Contractor

Hierarchy of Risk Management for Height Safety

The Work at Height Regulations (2005) also identified a 'Hierarchy of Risk Management' to help duty-holders to manage the risks associated with working at height. These are:

  • 1. Eliminate the risk - Locate plant and equipment in safe locations where there is no risk of a fall.
  • 2. Guard the hazard - Provide a parapet or guardrail (such as Latchways™ VersiRail) to eliminate the fall hazard.
  • 3. Protect the worker - Accept that the environment does present the risk of a fall from height, and therefore protect the worker by means of a fall arrest or fall restraint system, (such as the Constant Force© fall protection system).

By using only the finest quality Latchways™ products together with our own well-established ISO 9001 accredited quality procedures, Omega Red Group provides the very best in fall protection solutions.
