When your people work at height, keeping them safe is paramount. But it’s not always easy to see how best to make that protection practical and cost-effective. Our height safety engineers are here to help you minimise your risk.
Around a quarter of all workplace deaths are due to falls from height. Accordingly, the authorities take the Work at Height Regulations (2005) very seriously indeed. As an employer, you have both a moral and legal obligation to keep your people safe – even for short, one-off tasks.
A practical, flexible approach
We’ve built a reputation for working closely alongside architects and facilities managers, and taking a creative approach to height safety challenges – carefully adapting the equipment, installation methods and approach to suit the building and risk assessment.
That’s important, because the law – and the severity of the outcome of a fall – makes no distinction for the age and design of your building, or the frequency of the work.
Choosing your height safety equipment
We can call upon a wide range of alternatives to mitigate your height safety risks:
- Vertical and horizontal lifeline systems
- Roofline systems and walkways
- Loop ladders and fall protection ladder systems
- Fixed and mobile anchor points
- Fall arrest and work positioning lines
As a result, we’re usually able to find a suitable solution, protecting your workforce and satisfying the regulations – with a keen eye on productivity, practicality, and short and long-term cost.
