Working at Height

Farm Safety Partnership (FSP) has the ultimate ambition to reach a point where there are no farming fatalities by raising awareness through increase its reach of messages. This is something which the TFA supports and therefore publishes these vital messages. This week we talk about working at height.

 

Key messages to take home are:

1. Avoid roof work or work at height maintaining buildings. Do as much as you can from the ground.
2. Use a professional contractor with the knowledge, skills equipment and experience to safely work at height on buildings. Avoid doing the work yourself.
3. Where maintenance work at height cannot be avoided, plan ahead to make sure you have the right equipment and training.
4. Don’t be tempted to use the wrong equipment.

This campaign launched at the beginning of this month and can be followed by using the official hash tag #FarmSafetyPartnership

The NFU and FSP has produced a farm safety working at height leaflet which can be found by clicking here.
