Over the years, Maple have become adept at working at height from our countless projects installing products like brise soleil and architectural façades.

Despite the Working at Height Regulations (2005) being in place for almost 20 years, a survey taken in 2022 identified that nearly 99% of 200 construction professionals recognised that working at height is still a prevalent safety risk in the industry. This shows that increased awareness of the working at height regulations is as important as ever.
 
Maple’s tallest project to date was our rainscreen cladding installation for Oxygen Towers, a 109m residential building in Manchester city centre. Projects such as these mean Maple have a wealth of experience working at height and in our latest Knowledge Centre article, we cover the main points raised by the WAHR (2005). For more information regarding the Working at Height Regulations, click here.
 
‘Working from height’ classes as any work where a person could fall a distance and cause personal injury. One of the foremost points within the WAHR is that working from height must be avoided where it's reasonably practicable to do so. If it is unavoidable, the appropriate steps must be taken in order to reduce risk.
 
Within our article, we talk about assessing the risk involved when working from height, the training and experience required, how to stay safe whilst at height, the danger of falling objects and even how to prevent working from height as early as the design stage.
