Best practice guidelines for safe working at height in the logistics supply chain

The risks associated with working at height require all parties involved in loading, unloading, storage, cleaning, repair/maintenance and shipping/rail terminal operations to introduce safe systems of work based on risk assessment and management.

These guidelines which have been developed by industry experts aim to promote “best practice guidance” for safe working at height in the entire chemicals supply chain.

There is a legal requirement for all participants in the supply chain to conduct risk assessments of their operations to eliminate or minimise risks, to protect employees and other personnel, and to cooperate and co-ordinate their activities (See Directive 2001/45/EEC Of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 June 2001 amending Council Directive 89/655/EEC concerning the minimum safety and health requirements for the use of work equipment by workers at work (second individual Directive within the meaning of Article 16(1) of Directive 89/391/EEC)).
