FOHCUS

Working at Height Medicals

Work at height means work in any place where, if there were no precautions in place, a person could fall a distance liable to cause personal injury. Common causes of injury are falls from ladders and through fragile roofs.

The Work at Height Regulations 2005 aim to prevent death and injury from a fall from height – which is one of the biggest causes of workplace fatalities and major injuries. Shockingly, recent statistics published by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) show just over half (51%) of all construction deaths in 2022/23 were falls from height.

With FOHCUS as your occupational health partner, we can conduct thorough working at height medical assessments. These consist of tests and evaluations designed to assess an employee’s overall health and ability to work at height safely. The assessment includes everything from a general health check-up to a hearing test and a musculoskeletal exam.

The assessment is conducted by one of our highly qualified occupational health technicians, and from the results we can provide advice and guidance to ensure employees can work safely at height.
