Working at Height ...


Any working at height is covered by The Work at Height Regulations 2005 laid down by government, the purpose of which is to prevent death and injury caused by a fall from height. Within the SVR Safety Management System (SMS) is a policy document that outlines the SVR approach to working at height, the responsibilities of all staff, and guidance on the equipment that may be used. That policy is available using the following link: SMS-POL-112 Working at Height
