CONIAC produces essential messages on safe work at height
To promote safe working at height, CLC supports the work done by the Construction Industry Advisory Committee (CONIAC) which has produced a set of concise guides that are applicable to any work at height activity.
According to Paul Reeve of ECA and engineering services alliance Actuate UK, who chairs CONIAC’s WAH sub-group, “Safety Steps has been produced by the industry, for the industry. It’s an excellent reference for anyone looking to better manage working at height, or for checking current work at height messaging or guidance.”
Collectively, the six ‘Safety Steps’ guides provide designers, clients, managers, supervisors and operatives across the industry with targeted, essential messages on how to safely manage work at height. The guides have been produced by the CONIAC Managing Risk Well group, which includes representatives from leading industry bodies including employers, consultants and trades unions.
With the country’s focus on providing new buildings and infrastructure, along with retrofitting for net zero carbon in both residential and commercial sectors, it is vitally important that the industry understands and effectively manages the risks involved with working at height. This is particularly important when considering the planned increase in work in retrofitting domestic premises.
‘Safety Steps’ provides essential, industry-agreed, content to help to create any type of output, such as training courses, toolbox talks, infographics, webinars, guides or safety campaigns. The guides provide this key content in one place – saving considerable time and effort when looking for the key safety messages and making it a valuable, long-term reference for the industry.
