The routine task of gutter cleaning is very dangerous because it brings workers close to the perimeter of the roof. The best solution to the working at height hazard is to design a parapet wall that eliminates the risk of a fall. If this is not practicable, Workplace Access & Safety can assist with designing height safety equipment and systems including:
- Perimeter guardrail
- Fold-down guardrails that preserve building aesthetics
- Roof anchor points, static lines and harness systems
- Safe access to the roof, with stairs, fixed ladders, access hatches and walkways
- Step ladders to access work areas
- Rail system
- Static line
PROJECT | Melbourne Health cuts massive OHS challenge down to size
Melbourne Health has so many buildings, it has its own postcode. It could be daunting for an air conditioning firm to refuse to service equipment there on health and safety grounds.
PROJECT | Pfizer upgrades their rooftop access
Pfizer Pharmaceuticals (the manufacturers of Viagra), recently engaged Workplace Access & Safety to design and install a safe system of access to their roof mounted air-conditioning equipment.
