Fragile Roofs - Working Practice
5 December 2012
The HSE has an excellent FREE guide for safe working practices when working on fragile roofs.
Falls through fragile roofs and fragile roof lights account for almost a fifth of all fatal accidents resulting from a fall from height in the construction industry. This is often the case when working on older buildings, you need to make your workers aware of the issues and give them guidance accordingly.
