Good package which addresses most issues well.
Thankfully it wasn't too prescriptive about things such as lanyards being fitted to all handtools and equipment.
Allows user disgression to close off area below instead.
Much simpler and more easily understood by the workers than the template & SWM which came from the EWP hirer!!!
Saved time and got the boys back to work as soon as possible when they were pulled up for not working in accordance with the EWP hirer's SWMS.
Thanks for making life easier!
