On 6 April 2005, the Work at Height Regulations (WHR 2005) took effect, stating that no work should be performed at height if there is a safe and practicable alternative. The new legislation makes the 'duty holder' – a person controlling the work of others – responsible for ensuring onsite work complies with the rules.

This means that as a contracts manager or premises owner, you and your organisation could face prosecution if your supplier fails to follow the letter of the law, while your insurance company may reject a claim.

With h2o cleaning limited, you can relax knowing our window cleaning systems and services comply fully with the regulations. Using the Reach and Wash Pro-7 Thermo Pure System, we can clean windows, atria, paneling, canopies and fascia up to 65-feet high (six floors) from the safety of the ground. Featuring light water-fed telescopic poles, the system also eliminates the need for potentially dangerous ladders and costly high-access equipment.
