Work at Height Rescue Teams

Work at Height Rescue Teams

The Work at Height Regulations 2005 requires the provision of arrangements for an emergency plan and rescue. These capabilities must exist and be demonstrable before any work at height work commences, so if you are about to undertake some work but unable to provide and enact a rescue plan, then you will need to be supported by a specialist work at height rescue team.


There are various risks associated with undertaking working at height, these include:


Dropped objects

Potential for a medical incident

Faulty and unsuitable equipment

Fragile work surfaces which are in poor condition

Potential to overreach

  • Rescues from work at height in the event of an incident including complicated and high-risk rescues
  • Rescue plan creation and demonstration. (All credible scenarios relative to the specified site-risks identified will be practised and proved to ensure they are suitable and sufficient)
