Planning a Simple Scaffold Rescue Plan? THINK AGAIN!

Humbersideside Event 23rd October 2013



Safety & Access recently held the above event in partnership with the fall protection and rescue experts from Honeywell Safety Products to present a day focused on rescue planning and compliance to SG4:10 and the

Work at Height Regulations 2005.

The event was very well attended with representatives present from HSE, Major Construction, Oil and Gas and Scaffolding Contractors.

Many companies believe that their generic rescue plan is sufficient without understanding the consequences of poor planning.  The event focused on the effectiveness of correct planning for emergencies at height, the reality of it going wrong, and how to prevent mistakes being made! The session included a theoretical overview of the requirements and a practical demonstration of a rescue process.
