Work at Heights

The WSH (Work at Heights) Regulations was developed as a dedicated subsidiary legislation under the WSH Act to address key industry gaps, which includes the lack of proper supervision, planning, competency framework for working at heights and the dispersing of Work at Heights requirements in various WSH legislations.
