Work at Height

Published
20.08.2019

A serious accident in a County school when work at height was being undertaken provides a timely reminder that a suitable and sufficient risk assessment must be in place for this type of work.

On the Health & Safety Executive micro-site there is some practicable advice on doing these tasks safely and the SHE Website has guidance on work at height.

Regular tasks must be included in our school risk assessments with specific risk assessment for new or infrequent tasks.
