Working at Height JSA

Graham Marshall - Tuesday, February 01, 2011

Working at heights gives rise to a substantial number of serious and sometimes fatal accidents. 

There is no “safe height” and anyone working off the ground is at risk of falling or dropping objects onto other people. 

Potential problems can exist on suspended access platforms, scaffolds, ladders, roofs, open steelwork, excavations and any situation where work is being done in close proximity to edges, holes or fragile flooring materials. 

In our shop you'll find a Job Safety Analysis that is designed to get workers thinking about the hazards they face and how they can control the risk.
