    All he has to do is issue one himself so somebody can have a bit of paper to say the buck stops with him. He should also keep a notebook and record all inspections, eg if he uses the seat as he would have to inspect it before he climbes

    What sort of seats are they....wood or metal? As far as where/how to contact the HSE here is the link

    Easy, with a thread like this you might just provoke somebody into offering a course on how to climb a high seat..

    Barry no he doesn't, if you go down that route he will have to issue risk assessments every time he uses the high seat, high seats come under (so they say) ladders and scaffolding where you would require a inspector qualified inspector to come with you inspect the high seat before you could use it, he would issue a scaf tag which date his inspection it can only be used that day etc

    It all comes down to being too politically correct the only way around it is he uses his own portable high seat brings it in and removes it when finished.
