    Work at height safety precautions

    Fall from height injuries are a significant cause of many fatalities and severe injuries. Working at height can be done safely, but only when all appropriate safety measures have been put in place, leaving nothing to chance. This involves carrying out a detailed risk assessment before each and every project, and being prepared to take whatever ever precautions are necessary. These precautions include thing like:

    • Using crawler boards to spread the weight of personnel and equipement on roofs that are suspected of being fragile
    • Using scaffolding to access high places
    • Ensuring edge protection is installed
    • Deploying safety nets to catch anything or anyone who might fall
    • Issuing workers with fall arrest harnesses and hard hats
    • Using mobile plant such as scissor lifts or cherry pickers
    • Carrying out thorough risk assessments
    • Training and informing workers of best practice and alerting them to any dangers to be aware of such as avoiding stepping on potentially fragile roof-lights

    Scaffolding and scaffolding design and erection qualifications

    Scaffolding and mobile scaffold towers deserve a special mention because they are frequently used where work at height is concerned. Scaffolding needs to be designed to suit the project. Both the design and construction of scaffolding should only be carried out or supervised by accredited personnel. CITB (the Construction Industry Training Board) offer training and certification, as do PASMA (Prefabricated Access Suppliers and Manufacturers Association) in terms of mobile scaffold towers.
