Hazards/Risks:- Inadequate training- Inappropriate footwear used- Slippery and uneven surfaces- Faulty gear or devices- Weather

It is most beneficial to avoid working at heights when it is not necessary. Encourage your workers to use extended or long-handled devices for difficult-to-reach locations. If the work demands working at heights, first decide if falls and accidents are preventable. If so, proper equipment should be utilised and investigated at all times. If falls and mishaps are not avoidable or at risk of occurring then safety gears and fall protection landing gear should be used.
