Health & Safety for Window Cleaning Working at height is the biggest killer in the UK work force. In April of 2005, the Working at Height Regulations became law. HSE   Statistic   -   In   2002-2003,   67   people   died   and   nearly   4,000   suffered   serious   injury   as   a   result   of   a   fall   from   height.   The   use   of   ladders can be dangerous and it is wise to avoid using them on site if at all possible. Several   questions   have   arisen:   how   does   this   legislation   apply   to   you,   when   taking   on   a   window   cleaner?   What   are   the   legal   implications   if you fail to comply? The   new   legislation   puts   the   onus   on   you,   the   customer,   as   controller   of   the   work,   to   ensure   that   any   work   carried   out   is   not   done   at   height if it is safer to do so from the ground. HSE    Proposals    for    Working    At    Height    Regulations    (WAHR),    the    consultative    document    issued    by    the    Health    and    Safety    Executive Commission, states: 'pole-cleaning systems may be used for cleaning windows so that the work can be carried out from the ground.' In   summary:   You   must   ensure   that   no   work   is   done   at   height   if   it   is   safe   and   reasonably   practicable   to   do   it   other   than   at   height.   If   your window cleaner is not compliant to WAHR, as controller of the work (customer) you can be prosecuted by the Health & Safety Executive. As   controller   of   the   work,   if   you   instruct   someone   to   work   at   height   and   damage   was   done   to   your   property   or   injury   to   your   clients,   would an insurance company pay out on a claim if a window cleaner is not compliant with the WAHR? In   today's   health   &   safety   culture,   everyone   from   window   cleaners   to   customers   have   to   play   a   part   in   reducing   the   deaths   and   tens   of thousands of injuries, as just one death is too many.
