About the consultation
The movement of skips and containers is a high risk activity and results in a number of serious accidents and personal injuries in Jersey and the UK. In 2014, an employee of a skip hire company was crushed to death between his skip vehicle and a granite wall whilst attempting to deliver a skip to a construction site in St Helier.
At the conclusion of the inquest into his death, in April 2017, the Coroner exercised his powers, under Rule 12 of the Inquests and Post-mortem Examinations Rules 1995, to recommend to the Minister for Social Security that action be taken to address a number of issues raised during the inquest in order to prevent future deaths.
This has been achieved through the development of the draft Approved Code of Practice (ACoP).
What we want you to comment on
In developing the proposed ACoP, the Health and Safety Inspectorate has actively engaged with all known skip and hook loader operators operating in the Island. The Inspectorate is now inviting all other interested stakeholders to comment on the draft ACoP using the questionnaire.
