Roof Work

In an initiative running to March 2014, HSE is paying particular attention to roof work at all commercial premises. Inspectors are being told that they must proactively inspect any roof work that they come across and must take robust enforcement action where necessary.

Guidance booklet HSG33 explains how to work on roofs in safety, and aims to reduce the current toll of an average nine deaths per year and over 30 major injuries mainly suffered by those involved in cleaning, inspecting or painting, in particular on fragile roofs.
