Merchant Shipping and Fishing Vessels (Health and Safety at Work) (Work at Height) Regulations 2010 come into force

Implementation date: 6 April 2010

The Regulations extend the duty on employers to reduce the risk to employees’ health and safety that occurs from carrying out work at height to the maritime sector. This completes implementation of the Directive on the introduction of measures to protect workers using work equipment (2001/45/EC). The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
