Abstract In 2006, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) ran a nationally co-ordinated publicity, education and inspection campaign about the risks of working at height. The campaign objectives were to increase awareness of targeted workers and employers of the risks even when working at low height, and to influence attitudes and behaviour to working at height. The evaluation of the campaign comprised quantitative surveys among persons working at height and their employers, together with job observations. Findings are reviewed with respect to attitudes to working at height, awareness of the media campaign, views concerning the media campaign, inspections, raising awareness and changing behaviour.
