Hospital Emergency Department Case Study

Edge Protection For Hospital Emergency Department

Safesite was contacted by a long-standing client to survey the emergency department roof of a major hospital in Hampshire, which serves millions across the county each year with specialist services ranging from neuroscience, oncology, pathology and cardiology.

The department’s roof, which had no existing guardrails or safety systems, was considered a risk when accessed for maintenance and repair, and a new system was required.

The Project

Safesite was approached directly by the hospital due to our fantastic relationship, which has developed over many years. An effective safety solution was required immediately, with minimal impact on the daily operation of the hospital.

After surveying the roof, our expert engineers identified potential fall risks to workers who might need access. A collective fall protection solution was recommended in the form of our KeeGuard Premium system.

KeeGuard Premium, part of the KeeGuard roof guardrail range, is an innovative free-standing guardrail alternative to fabricated barriers which requires no rooftop penetration. KeeGuard Premium also has a smaller footprint than standard KeeGuard, as it does not need off-set counterweights, making it ideal for when space is a factor.

Designed and built from modular, highly-durable Kee Klamp fittings, KeeGuard Premium provides effective fall protection whilst being quick and easy to install and maintain, with a lifespan measured in decades. As a collective protection system, no special training is required for the system to be effective.

The Result

The modular, minimal-tools design of KeeGuard Premium meant the system could be installed quickly and with minimal disruption to the department beneath.

At a total cost of just £6,294, the client was very happy with the solution provided, and the roof can now be accessed safely for years to come.
