How to minimise common risks when working at heights

Working at heights can be done extremely safely when the correct procedures and equipment are used. Despite this, there are still many injuries each year as a direct result from working at height. The most likely causes of injuries come from; using ladders incorrectly, overstretching while using stepped equipment and using the incorrect equipment such as benches or chairs to assist while working at heights.

One of the key ways you can minimise the risk of injury is by correctly planning and using the correct equipment that is required for the job.
