Working at height or in a Confined Space?

Working at height, Confined Space, or a combination of both, require intrinsic risk assessing and the solid implementation of a Safe System of Work.

We strongly believe that thorough forward planning with continual risk assessment are the essence of preventive measures against accidents and incidents, corporate manslaughter charges, years of stressful court proceedings and the HSE Executive’s detailed investigation.

What do you need to consider when planning work at height?


The following are all requirements by Law that you need to consider when planning and undertaking work at height. You must:
Take account of weather conditions that could compromise worker safety;
Check that the place (e.g. a roof) where work at height is to be undertaken is safe.
Stop materials or objects from falling or, if it is not reasonably practicable to prevent objects falling, take suitable and sufficient measures to make sure nobody can be injured.
Use exclusion zones to keep people away or debris netting to collect materials falling off.
Think about foreseeable situations and make sure employees know the emergency procedures.
Plan for emergencies and rescue. E.g. Ensure you have procedures and on-site provision of trained personnel and appropriate, certified equipment for recovering injured and incapacitated personnel.


You must not rely on the emergency services for rescue in your plan.
