ATLAS President Attends APPG on Working at Height Meeting

ATLAS President, Jason Harfield, attended a virtual All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Working at Height meeting on 3 June 2020. The focus of the meeting was on COVID-19 and the implications for the working at height sector, with a specific focus on collaboration with the work at height sector and Government to ensure that the vital issue of workplace safety continues after the pandemic, particularly in regards to working at height. The meeting was chaired by Chris Stephens MP (Vice Chair of the APPG on Working at Height) and included speakers, Mark Keily (Health, Safety & Environmental Director at Loxam PAD & Nationwide Platforms), Mark Davison (Chair of Specialist Access Engineering & Maintenance Association) and Jonathan Capper (Chair of IRATA & Managing Director of Lyon Equipment). The meeting raised a number of concerns in relation to the impact of COVID-19 on the safety regulations in regards to working at height, and the need for the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) to be more proactive in the enforcement of these regulations. ATLAS President, Jason Harfield, spoke on the need for the HSE to be more proactively involved with the working at height sector and also raised his concern about the sector being potentially pushed to take shortcuts, when it comes to safety, in order to improve work productivity as a result of COVID-19. Chair, Chris Stephens MP, confirmed that he would take forward keys asks from the meeting to the Department for Work & Pensions and will support the calls for a Committee enquiry into the HSE.
