Building maintenance activities, including repairs, account for 42% of construction-related deaths and serious injuries according to past HSE statistics. With heritage buildings having a significant amount of roofing and external work, there's greater risk of falls from height and precarious environments.
Rebecca Weir, our speaker for this talk, was the author of the Association for Project Safety's practice note The CDM-C, Collaborative Thinking and Heritage Sites published in 2012. The practice note was written to assist CDM coordinators, construction safety managers, designers and all related disciplines involved in the safe management of construction work on heritage sites or ancient monuments.

Shaw House, a Grade I listed house on the outskirts of Newbury, was built in 1581 and stands today as an extremely important survival of an Elizabethan house. Over the years it has been a family home, a school and a dilapidating shell, but in January 2005 its restoration commenced and it re-opened to the public in October 2008.
