wjkk wjkf, I was wondering if someone could help me. I wear a turban, but need to work at the top of a building from work. This is 13/14 storey's high. We are currently doing a risk assessment at work. We have been on the 'training at heights course' etc and have all the PPE. The current legislation says that 'turban wearing sikhs are exempt from wearing a helmet on construction sites'. Any other place of work they may be breaching the law. Could someone give me details if they know of any cases where turban wearing sikhs are exempt from wearing a helmet on top of the building. Or can someone give me contact details for the sikh council / sikh federation uk. Any help would be much appreciated. thanks in advance wjkk wjkf
