Working at Heights

Static caravans overlook the sea. Mobile home and holiday parks

Both holiday and residential parks can be high maintenance, with park owners being required to undertake a wide variety of works to keep the park in good repair. While park owners may use external contractors, there may be times when the employees of the park are able to undertake work.

When employees of holiday or residential parks undertake work at heights the park owner must ensure that health and safety requirements are observed.

Guidance produced by the Health and Safety Executive for employers explains in straightforward terms what should and should not be done when employees work at height, both before and during the work.
