on Wednesday, 18 February 2015. Posted in Reference Documents

cover heights tankersThe dairy industry recognises the need to reduce accidents from working at height on milk tankers and find solutions that minimise the reasons for accessing the top of milk tankers.

The structure of this guidance follows the current legal requirements under the Work at Height Regulations by following the hierarchy for managing risks from working at height, i.e. taking steps to avoid, prevent or minimise risks if colleagues are required to work at height. However, technical developments could provide further opportunities to minimise working at height in the future.

This guidance has been produced by Dairy UK through a working group drawn from Dairy UK's Occupational Health and Safety Committee and the Management Committee of the Dairy Transport Assurance Scheme.
