Working at height toolbox talk

Toolbox talk on working at height.

Working at height refers to jobs above 1.8 meters or below ground level and presents hazards, including falling objects, platform collapse, and unsafe ladder use. Safety measures include competent supervision, risk assessment, working from ground level or reducing work distance to the ground, clear communication, safety gear, and regularly inspecting work equipment. Unsafe practices should be reported while lightweight tasks should utilize ladders, with scaffold or platforms for heavy-duty tasks.
