- All those working at heights must be trained and competent
- If you are not trained or don’t know what equipment to use then you should engage a specialist roofing contractor
- Try to avoid or minimise the time spent working at heights whenever possible – even short duration work needs the right planning and access equipment such as mobile elevating work platforms, scaffolds and fall prevention devices
- Reduce the risk of falls from large machinery such as combines by always using the access ladders, steps and/or standing platforms provided by the manufacturer.
