Workers Have the Right to Expect Safety at Height
When individuals turn up to work, they have certain responsibilities. For example, they should behave in accordance with the terms of their contract, show respect to co-workers and so on. However, they also have various rights and it is up to you as an employer to uphold these. The most important concerns safety. In this day and age, no one in the UK arrives at work expecting to be placed in severe danger. Therefore, it is up to you to ensure that all risks are contained as much as possible.
This is particularly key when it comes to working at height. Gravity can be a hugely damaging force when people do not respect it. Indeed, falls from height are the most common cause of workplace fatality in Britain.
The good news is, it is now easier than ever before to source superb products that help to keep workers out of harm’s way.
For example, here at Heightsafe Systems we offer a variety of height safety offerings that may be perfect for your organisation. We know exactly what is required from such things and have a wealth of experience, meaning you can trust the products you source from us.
To peruse our broad range of offerings, including our horizontal lifeline products and other such things, simply take a look around the rest of our website.
Whatever you do, never neglect the issue of employee safety. If you do, the consequences could be disastrous, not only for the individuals who work for you but also their loved ones.29th December 2011 9:34 am
