Welcome To the

All-Party parliamentary group 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.
