The AIF enjoys a constructive relationship with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and regularly contributes to HSE-sponsored Working Well Together (WWT) safety events across the country. The AIF What to Watch When Working at Height PocketCard is distributed to all attendees at joint AIF/HSE ‘Working Well at Height’ safety days.
By its very nature, working at height is not limited to one industry sector or one particular workplace activity. It happens everywhere, everyday in a huge range of different situations. It therefore impacts on a wide number of trade associations and professional bodies who all have the interests – and safety – of their respective members at heart.
For this reason the Foundation benefits from a successful and productive dialogue with trade organisations and professional bodies such as Hire Association Europe (HAE), the Association for Project Safety (APS), the International Institute for Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM) and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
Sharing and exchanging knowledge and information with these organisations is central to its work.
