Government Overhauls Working at Height Guidance

Read More

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has overhauled its guidance for working at height.  This is part of the Government's plan to update over-complicated regulations which are seen to waste businesses' time and money.

Key changes to the HSE guidance for working at height will include:

- providing simple advice about do’s and don’ts when working at height to ensure people are clear on what the law requires

- busting some of the persistent myths about health and safety law, such as the banning of ladders when they can still be used

- offering targeted advice to helping business in different sectors manage serious risks sensibly and proportionately

- helping workers to be clearer about their own responsibilities for working safely.
