Working at Height

At Walton D&C, we like to keep our workforce up to date with training, and our 2020 training regime has started in earnest. The first part of the year will concentrate on Working at Height and the use of specific equipment.

The Working at Height Regulations 2005 place a duty on employers to ensure that work at height is controlled and completed in a safe manner. Along with the standard risk assessments and method statements, we are investing in our workforce to ensure our operatives have all the tools they need to complete their work and go home safely.

With our first PASMA and IPAF courses underway for our electricians, we are now moving on to specific in-house Working at Height training. Our training programme has been designed and is implemented by our own Health and Safety Manager, Kevin Westlake.

Kevin has seen his fair share of accidents and incidents with other contractors and places huge importance on ensuring our work at height is safe. He said “Working at Height is always a risky undertaking, especially within the construction industry, but at Walton we always ensure our staff are well trained, well informed and confident in working at height practices. We invest our time into ensuring everyone involved in working at height is aware of the dangers and how to prevent needless accidents”.

All staff undergo specific in-house training and we provide IPAF and PASMA training for mobile equipment such as scissor lifts and tower scaffolds through our training partners, LTC and Focus Training (both based in Plymouth).
