These considerations fall under the term height safety. Height safety is associated with protecting those who work from any height where a fall could result in injury. Legislation in this area is particularly grey, but that does not mean businesses can subside in this field!
If you work with your feet above ground level, this is considered working at height. In order to be doing this, equipment must be in use. It could be as simple as a ladder to reach the top of the wall to mobile elevated working platforms.
Businesses that revolve around this kind of work must adhere to the height safety laws. If not, they may be liable for injury caused by falls. To avoid this up to date risk assessments must be carried out and first aid equipment to hand if need be.
