It’s high up there!

Are you certain your turbine engineers and technicians are safe to work at heights?

Did you know that falls from height were the most common cause of workplace fatalities in 2014

accounting for nearly 3 in 10 (29%) fatal injuries to workers (RIDDOR statistics)?

Were you aware that slips trips and falls (STFs) at work were responsible for over a third (36%) of

all injuries to employees reported to HSE under RIDDOR?

And, did you know that the evidence points to more falls occurring in Autumn and Winter and in the

older workforce?


In order to ensure your workforce is as safe as possible in preparation for the winter months, consider offering them

‘Working at Heights Medicals’.

Workers who are 55 years of age and over are at more risk of falls and OHSAS recommends annual ‘Working at Heights

Medicals’ for these employees.

OHSAS can provide these assessments on site or at a mutually convenient location at minimal disruption to the employer and employee.
