Demolition work

There is a risk of falling and a risk of exposure to asbestos and PCBs when working on partial or full demolition. The Danish Working Environment Authority (Arbejdstilsynet) therefore has special focus on these risks in connection with inspections. We also focus on other risk areas such as falling objects and heavy lifting.

Safety during demolition

Demolition work requires good planning. Risk of crashing and collapse must be prevented, and dangerous materials must be handled in accordance with Danish regulations.

Personal protective equipment

The employer is responsible for providing the necessary protective equipment and for ensuring that employees use the equipment. Personal protective equipment must be suitable for the work being performed.
