Planning Roofing Works?14th May 2018
Working on a roof can be dangerous.
The Work at Height Regulations 2005 clearly sets out a hierarchy which should be followed when planning any work at height.
The hierarchy should be followed systematically and only when one level is not reasonably practicable may the next level down be considered:
Avoid work at height → Use equipment or measures to prevent falls → Use equipment and measures to minimise distances/consequences of a fall.
Wherever possible it is a requirement to erect internal fall arrest safety netting or a similar passive collective measure when working on or adjacent to fragile roof surfaces.
