These Regulations replace all earlier regulations about working at height, and implement the European Council Directive 2001/45/EC which specifies minimum safety and health requirements for the use of equipment for work at height.

  • All work at height is to be properly planned and organised.
  • The risks of working at height must be assessed to ensure appropriate work equipment is selected and used.
