Welcome To the

All-Party parliamentary group on working at height

General Election Notice:

Following the Dissolution of Parliament on 30 May, the APPG on Working at Height
has temporarily ceased to exist. We will reconvene after polling day (4 July).

About the APPG on Working at Height

The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Working at Height brings together MPs and Peers with Government, industry leaders, trade associations, SMEs and contractors to raise awareness of the risks of working at height.

Falls from height and falling objects from height account for the highest number of preventable fatalities and injuries across all sectors in UK industry.

The Group’s aim is to understand the root causes and propose effective, sensible measures to reduce this toll and send people safely home from work.

The APPG on Working at Height is funded by the not-for-profit organisation Access Industry Forum
and supported by the No Falls Foundation, the first and only UK-based charity dedicated to preventing falls from height and helping people affected by the consequences of a fall.
