The term work at height applies to a wide range of situations ranging from the obvious one like working on platforms, ladders, scaffolds or stages to working alongside deep trenches. This is because the crucial thing to understand about work at height is that it’s not how far you climb but how far you can fall. Falls doesn’t just mean people falling from heights.
