Health and Safety Resource Centre

Working at height remains one of the biggest causes of fatalities and major injuries. Organisations have specific obligations under WHS/OHS legislation to manage the risk of someone falling from one level to another. This toolbox talk includes information on how to identify working at heights and working on ladders hazards and recommendations for minimising the risk of injury to workers and others.

This Toolbox Talk topic is suitable for any workplace at which people work at heights on work platforms, ladders, scaffolds or other elevated work areas.

Once the Toolbox Talk is completed and employees have been consulted, and had their views heard, records of discussions and actions should be recorded in the Toolbox Talk Record Form.
