As an employee or employer, it is very important to work safely at height. After all, working at height always involves risks. It is therefore essential to take the necessary precautions and carry out a thorough risk analysis.

A working at height risk assessment is an important part of the Working at Height Toolbox. A toolbox meeting is a short meeting in which key safety instructions and procedures are discussed.

The aim of the toolbox meeting is to increasing safety in the workplace and the raise employee awareness.

Risk analysis as part of toolbox working at height

Working at height risk assessment is an important part of the toolbox meeting. This involves identifying all the risks associated with working at height. 

Consideration should be given not only to the height at which work is done, but also to the environment in which work is done and the materials and tools used.

It is very important to minimise risks as much as possible. This can be done by using the right personal protective equipment. 

We offer a broad range to safety products suitable for working at height.

Training and instructions

But using PPE alone is not enough. It is important to also provide the necessary training and instructions to follow. Wijngaarden VeiligGoed offers various training courses for working safely at height.

Responsibility of employer

As an employer, you are responsible for the safety of your employees. It is therefore important to hold regular toolbox meetings and carry out a thorough risk analysis. By taking the right precautions and using the right PPE, you can ensure that your employees can work safely at heights.

Reasons toolbox working at height

There are several reasons to organise a Working at Height Toolbox. We list them:

  • Safer working environment
  • Obligation
  • Communication and cooperation
  • Reputation

Safer working environment

One of the benefits of a toolbox working at height is that it contributes to a safer working environment. By identifying the risks and taking the right measures, you reduce the risk of accidents. 

This not only benefits your employees, but also your company. After all, a safe working environment reduces absenteeism and production losses.

Safer working environment

In addition, organising a toolbox meeting is an obligation for companies carrying out work at height. Under the Occupational Health and Safety Act, an employer is obliged to inform its employees about the risks of the work and how they can be reduced. 

A toolbox meeting is an important part of this obligation.

Communication and cooperation

Another advantage of a toolbox working at height is that it contributes to better communication and cooperation among employees. 

By discussing the risks together and looking at solutions, there is more understanding and commitment among employees. This can lead to a better working atmosphere and higher productivity.


Finally, a working at height toolbox can help enhance your company's reputation. By demonstrating your commitment to safety and taking the necessary measures to protect your workers, you can show potential customers and clients that you are a reliable partner are.
