Falls from height have been the biggest hazard and resulted in the maximum number of injuries and fatalities in hazardous industries, particularly in construction, manufacturing and
shipyards. Considerable research and development have taken place in recent years to address the hazards and come up with controls at the workplace to eliminate or at least to
mitigate the adverse consequences of falling from height. However, fall accidents continue to happen leading to major injuries and fatalities. One of the reasons is failure on the part of
stakeholders in the hazardous industries to fully understand and implement the safety guidelines given in the Regulations and Code of Practice for working at height. It is also found
that often the safety controls are not applied in the proper hierarchical sequence that is recommended, and in fact mandatory for safely working at height.
In particular, many misinterpret and also inadequately apply the controls required or recommended in the Code of Practice.
The objective of the present course is to review the background of practitioners and safety personnel whose work involves their and their workers planning for and working at height, in
such a manner that the aims of the guidelines are clearly understood. Emphasis will be laid on developing a better understanding of the logic behind the various code recommendations,
and on the procedures for implementation of the different controls in the proper hierarchy.
