Issue 2: Guarding on Roof Steps: Recommendations and Requirements under UK Regulations

In Insight Issue 1 we discussed the requirements under the UK Building Regulations concerning providing guarding for personnel and public access.  This falls under section K2.

In this Issue we shall be looking at K1 Stairs, Ladders and Ramps.

Specifically, we shall be looking at the requirements for stairs for roofing access and the guarding that needs to be provided.  In our research we have also taken into account references made within other pertinent legislation.

Taking all of this legislature into account then routes for maintenance must be risk assessed and the appropriate measures put into place.  The appropriate measures highlighted in our research seem to be clear.
