Not everybody has the nerve to work at height. Certainly, it takes a special type of individual to carry out tasks high above ground as, unlike working at street level, one false move can create situations that have the potential to do very serious harm indeed.
Naturally, if you rely on these brave professionals to carry out aerial tasks for your company, it is vital that you ensure all relevant risks are mitigated so that the level of occupational danger is always kept at a minimum. After all, it is vitally important to remember that height safety is an issue that has the potential to kill so it is essential that you make sure everything that can be done, is done.
If corners are cut or a culture of negligence is allowed to develop, your aerial workers may face terrible consequences. In the worst-case scenarios, this could mean workers losing their lives or gaining life-changing injuries, and that is something that you or your company will not want to be responsible for. Indeed, not only would you have your conscience to contend with, you may also be left facing legal proceedings that could seriously damage your company’s reputation and ability to operate.
