This guidance note is intended to help employers, managers and supervisors make vehicle accidents in the workplace less likely. It will also be useful for self-employed people, contractors, safety representatives, vehicle operators and other employees concerned with transport safety in the workplace.
This guidance has had significant changes made including added images. The purpose of this guide is to eliminate or reduce the risk of injury from slips and trips by providing advice and guidance to all persons involved in organising, planning, managing or undertaking work in scaffolding related activities.
Employers are responsible for establishing an inspection regime for the inspection of fall protection equipment that is produced and implemented by a competent person. A Register of equipment should be compiled for use in managing the inspection regime.
This is the pocket version of the management guide.

Health surveillance is the application of systematic, regular and appropriate procedures to detect early signs of work related ill health in employees who are exposed to certain health risks. An important area for consideration in managing well and leading to consideration of behavioural safety.
More than a quarter of the accidents reported each year by NASC members to enforcing authorities are associated with manual handling – the transporting or supporting of loads by hand, or by bodily force. A well-established document that proved to still be robust and valid. Hence date changes only in the 2015 update.
