Safety at Work

Safety at Work

Health and Safety at work is critically important, we as duty holders always ensure:

  • all work at height is properly planned and organised;
  • those involved in work at height are competent;
  • the risks from work at height are assessed and appropriate work equipment is selected and used;
  • the risks from fragile surfaces are properly controlled; and
  • equipment for work at height is properly inspected and maintained.

When working we will always:

  • avoid work at height where we can;
  • use work equipment or other measures to prevent falls where we cannot avoid working at height; and
  • where we cannot eliminate the risk of a fall, use work equipment or other measures to minimise the distance and consequences of a fall should one occur.
