Working Near Fragile Surfaces

18th November 2020

The HSE’s annual workplace fatality figures for 2019-20 highlight that approximately a quarter of all worker deaths were due to falls from a height. According to the HSE, at particular risk are workers who carry out small, short-term maintenance and cleaning jobs.

The S2 Partnership has written an Advice Note: Working Near Fragile Surfaces, outlining how implementing some simple assessments and controls can help to reduce the number of accidents occurring on roofs near fragile surfaces.
