Can you access your cooling tower safely?

Your cooling tower is one of the most accessed items on your roof. With regular service and testing requirements, it’s essential your cooling tower can be easily accessed. Without it, you’re increasing the level of risk to your business. Your service provider can also refuse service, costing you time and money.

Irregular testing and maintenance also increases the risk of public health issues – such as an outbreak of an airborne disease such as Legionnaires – temporarily closing down your business and creating reputational risk.

Unfortunately most cooling tower platforms automatically included with your cooling tower solution are not fit for purpose or compliant with required standards. To keep your business protected, our expert team can guide you through the procurement process and towards a cooling tower platform for your application. Increasing your level of safety and compliance and reducing risk and costs in the process.


What does a cooling tower platform need to be compliant?

A cooling tower platform needs to be more than simply creating a clear path of travel to your cooling towers <link to Cooling Tower Risk Assessment page>. As well as being built from non-corrosive aluminium, your cooling tower platform needs to be:

  • ISO 9001 Five-tick Quality Certified
  • Tested in a NATA (National Association of Testing Authorities) accredited facility
  • Fully compliant to Australian Standard and industry OH&S legislation
  • R10 slip resistance (independently tested in a NATA laboratory to meet the outdoor walkway slip rating of R10 on a wet oil ramp test)

This is just some of the requirements that your cooling tower platform needs to have to be compliant. NATA accredited, our risk assessments <link> and design services <link> will provide you everything you need to secure the right platform for your needs.
