A safety programme is vital to the safety of any employee that is working from height or in confined spaces. Employers are responsible for providing the necessary safety equipment and procedures to carry out any work in accordance with the latest HSE Legislation as detailed in the HSE Workplace (Health, Safety & Welfare) Regulations 1992 and the Work At Heights Regulations 2005, which came into effect in April 2005. Updates to all regulations can be found on www.hse.gov.uk As an employer it is your responsiblity to ensure the safety of all employees, failure to so can result in prosecution.
