S&HE 19/6/19 Roles and Responsibilities for Working at Height panel discussion

23 Apr 2019

The Scaffolding Association has been asked to return to the Safety & Health Expo to run a panel discussion on the ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES FOR WORKING AT HEIGHT. This will take place on Wednesday 19th June at 11.30am in the Operational Excellence Theatre.




Led by Robert Candy, Chief Executive of The Scaffolding Association, the panel will discuss a range of roles, responsibilities and best practices from the perspective of clients and contractors in order to give an informed overview for those involved with working at height contracts.

The purpose of the Work at Height Regulations 2005 is to prevent death and injury caused by a fall from height. If you are an employer or you control work at height, such as a facilities manager or building owner who contracts others to work at height, then the Regulations apply to you. You must make sure work is properly planned, supervised and carried out by competent people, including using the right type of equipment for working at height. This session will look at how you meet your responsibilities under the regulations and explore the impact and consequences of non-compliance.
