Companies must provide a safe working environment but ensuring safe access for work does not simply end by investing in and installing safety equipment.
Once equipment has been installed it must be maintained and examined at least once a year as outlined in BS 7883 and BS EN 365. Companies and/or individuals who do not comply with this can be held accountable if an accident occurs and the equipment is found to be faulty and/or uncertified.
As part of its recertification service, Safesite's qualified engineers will not only assess roof safety equipment such as life line systems and guardrails, but will also inspect and certify all PPE used in conjunction with this equipment, including lanyards and harnesses.
In addition to the recertification, Safesite's engineer will also advise on any fall from height concerns around the site and, if required, carry out individual training on equipment provided. This will help to ensure that everyone using the safety equipment is trained on the correct usage as well as how to check equipment such as PPE for any sign of fault before using it.
