Work at Height: A High-risk Job
Work at height is probably one of the most dangerous jobs available today. These “voltigeurs” are generally the employees who work on skyscrapers and high platforms such as scaffolding or pruners.
This job, which requires an excellent physical condition, involves real risks and dangers, but these risks can be anticipated and avoided in most cases.
Rigorous measures to reduce the risk of falling from height
Some measures can help decrease the risks of accident such as wearing a helmet, wearing a safety harness for technicians at height, checking rope anchorage points for tree work, and checking the quality of various equipment used in the process.
