Fragile roofs - Fragile lives
HSE has assisted CITB in the production of a film, titled Fragile roofs - Fragile lives. It is hosted on CITB's website and YouTube channel, and is free to view, share and use. In the film, 4 people tell of the devastating effects falls through fragile roofs has had on themselves and their families. The film is to raise awareness of the 9 people who die each year falling through fragile materials, and the life changing injuries suffered by many more. We want people to think about the consequences of it happening to them, or to anybody they know and love. It is primarily aimed at those who work in the construction sector, although it is applicable to all industries where you find fragile roofs. In fact, the core message could be applied to almost any high risk work activity. So please watch the film, and feel free to share the link with anyone who may wish to use the film as part of tool box talks or other training.

Asbestos Licence Conditions
This is a list of the standard conditions attached to each Asbestos Licence. Please note that these are standard wordings - the wording on the actual licence may differ slightly in some circumstances. Where condition 19 is allocated, some full licence holders have this condition added to their existing standard licence to allow them additionally to carry out maintenance work - the wording of this condition on their licence would then be amended slightly to cover this circumstance. The type of licence held by the company is available in the "Licence Type" column, but if in any doubt, you should contact the company direct and ask to see a copy of their licence. Page 3 shows standard conditions attached to Asbestos Licences specifically issued to Maintenance Licence Holders.
