Solar panel maintenance and cleaning
Maintaining rooftop solar panels is almost always a high-risk task. They are always located at height, need to be accessed frequently, often located near unprotected edges or fragile surfaces such as skylights and the consequences of a fall from a roof are severe.
If it’s not practicable to move the solar panels to a safer location, ask Workplace Access & Safety to advise on the most suitable fall prevention equipment:
- Perimeter guardrail
- Fold down guardrails that preserve building aesthetics
- Roof anchors, static lines and harness systems
- Safe access to the roof, with stairs, fixed ladders, access hatches and walkways
- Rail systems
- Static lines
Workplace Access & Safety can also review new solar installations to ensure they do not create new fall hazards or make existing fall prevention systems dangerous.
