- Transport Industry Guidelines for Eliminating and Mitigating Risk of Falls from Height. The Building Products Delivery Working Group (BPDWG) is a committee of manufacturers, logistics and transport companies, and regulators. It has examined ways of eliminating or reducing the risks from working at heights associated with the use of load security techniques for the delivery of building products. The findings of that study are reported in Transport Industry Guidelines for Eliminating and Mitigating Risk of Falls from Height, which illustrates the equipment and methods available and offers an indication as to their suitability. The guidance is intended to assist in deciding what equipment and methods may best suit a company's needs as part of a suitable assessment of risks to health and safety and taking into account the environment in which the equipment is to be used.
