HSE Guidance: Working on Roofs

Working on a roof can be dangerous. Falls account for more deaths and serious injuries in construction than any other reason. Falling from a roof almost always leads to a serious injury. The risks are substantial, no matter how long or short the work may be. Many people have been killed when they were only meant to be on the roof for a few minutes in order to ‘have a quick look’ or to carry out a small repair.


Our detailed guidance summarises key safeguards and precautions for people who carry out roof work or are directly responsible for managing or supervising it.
