Delivery Vehicle Falls from Height Guidance

The Building Products Delivery Working Group (BPDWG) is a UK committee of manufacturers, logistics & transport companies and regulators (HSE). The aim of the BPDWG is to aid in developing best practice in the Building Products Supply Industry for loading, moving and unloading goods safely. As a recent initiative, the committee examined ways of eliminating or reducing the risks of working at height associated with the use of load security techniques in the UK. This document reports the findings of that study. The intent is to illustrate what equipment and methods are available and offer a general insight into their capability and limitations. This may assist in determining what equipment or methods may best suit a company’s needs based on a suitable assessment of risks to health and safety and taking into account the environment in which the equipment is to be used and relevant economic factors. This does not detract from the need to comply with current legislation.
