Protecting Height Workers

Published: 05/04/2017

Protecting Height Workers

Did you know that 144 workers died whilst working during 2015/16. Of these, 26% were killed as a result of falling from a height. As a result Aviva is asking whether employers are doing enough to protect their staff from falls from a height?

In the majority of cases, it was found that employers failed to conduct adequate risk assessments and have allowed their staff to carry out jobs without having the necessary safeguards in place.

Whilst falls are commonly associated with work in the construction industry, many occur in less risky circumstances such as electricians falling from ladders, teachers falling from chairs or shop assistants falling when trying to get boxes down from high shelving and storage racks. 

The HSE states that those planning work at height must:

  • avoid work at height where they can
  • use work equipment or other measures to prevent falls where they can’t avoid working at height
  • where they cannot eliminate the risk of a fall, use work equipment or other measures to minimise the distances and consequences of a fall should one occur.

At Flint we work with insurers to provide solutions to help prevent such incidences. Many insurers can facilitate access to liability risk consultants who can provide sound advice on safe working at heights; Aviva has their own network of preferred suppliers. If this is an issue to you contact – James Parrott or Jonny Garrett, Commercial Account Executives on 0344 247 1504 who will be able to help.
