There are some basic principles for working at height, and they apply equally to working at height on a vehicle. In law, work at height means ‘work in any place where a person could fall a distance likely to cause personal injury if no precautions are taken’, it includes getting on and off a vehicle trailer.

Although some people might not regard work below average head height as ‘work at height’, the law requires people to consider falls from any height where someone could be injured, including falls from trailers or the tops of vans.  In fact, most of the injuries reported to HSE resulting from falls from vehicles are from a fall from below head height. The most common area of the vehicle for people to fall from is the load area.
Vehicle edge protection is very topical, there have been far too many incidents of drivers and staff at loading bays falling while loading and unloading. In fact, anyone involved with working at height from a high flat-bed vehicle needs protection. This is deemed by the Work At Height 2005 regulations to be working at height - it might not be very high - however stepping backwards and falling when unaware is extremely hazardous, even from relatively low heights. 
Compliance with the Work At Height 2005 regulations should therefore be every employer’s aim.
At Working At Height we have the solution, we work closely with you to develop the most suitable means of protecting your staff and achieve compliance. We can take dimensions of all your vehicles and design the appropriate platform or edge protection.
