HSE webpage for falls from height
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 (for example facilities managers or building owners who may contract others to work at height) the Regulations apply to you.
Employers and those in control of any work at height activity must make sure work is properly planned, supervised and carried out by competent people. This includes using the right type of high access solutions for working at height. Low-risk, relatively straightforward tasks will require less effort when it comes to planning.
Employers and those in control must first assess the risks.
Employees have general legal duties to take reasonable care of themselves and others who may be affected by their actions, and to co-operate with their employer to enable their health and safety duties and requirements to be complied with. (Excerpt taken from the HSE)
Collaborative working was the key to Global platforms Ltd getting short listed alongside Nuvia Ltd at the Nuclear decommissioning authority awards on the 4th November at Event City Manchester.
Openness, transparency and communication by both companies from the cradle to the grave played a major part of gaining a place on the very prestigious short list.
