Ensuring the safety of those who work at height on buildings should be a priority for both site managers and designers.

Under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015, foreseeable risks should be eliminated, reduced or controlled, both during construction and in the following years with maintenance or general roof work.

Where regular access is identified onto the roof, such as for maintenance of plant and equipment, the correct safety measures must be put into place.

This means, then, that under the CDM regulations, some form of safe, demarcated route that limits contact with the roof and steers workers away from danger areas should be considered.
