West Dunbartonshire is commuter country for Glasgow

Most people who live in West Dunbartonshire, and who go out to work for a living, commute to and from Glasgow. Like any big city, the variety of employment there covers a wide range of industries, from engineering and pharmaceuticals, to warehousing and retail, catering and hospitality. The most common type of accident across all types of industries is the slip, trip, or fall accident; accidents which can cause serious injury, especially if the fall in question is a fall from height.

The dangers of working at height that can lead to a West Dunbartonshire accident at work compensation claim

Because of the inherent danger of carrying out any work at height, the nature of the work to be carried out should first be looked at to ascertain if there are any other alternatives that don’t involve the potential of a fall from height incident. If there is no alternative, then a thorough risk assessment must be carried out to:

  • Determine the safest work methodology
  • Specify appropriate work at height equipment (e.g. ladders, cherry pickers, mobile platforms, scissor lifts etc.)
  • Suggest appropriate PPE (Personal Protective Equipment – including fall arrest equipment) to mitigate risk as far as possible

People should never work at height alone

Wherever possible, work at height should never be carried out by a lone worker. There should always be someone else in attendance, even if that someone else remains on the ground. Whoever is working at height must be fully trained and experienced. Whenever training is taking place, the trainee must be accompanied by an appropriately experienced and if necessary qualified individual.
