What are your responsibilities and requirements in regard to roof access and fall protection systems?
Are you aware of the necessary controls that must be taken so that you do not leave yourself open to the risk of litigation? Even more importantly, are you ensuring that your workers are safe and that you are giving them the protection they need and deserve?
Our whitepaper Height Safety - It's Everyone's Business discusses these issues which are of constant concern to anyone who has personnel conducting work at heights on their premises.
In this paper we cover the key considerations for fall protection:
- Knowledge of regulatory standards and guidelines
- The Hierarchy of Control
- Accurate installation
- User training
- Maintenance & inspections
- Rescue Plans
- What are SWMS
The paper also addresses the penalties for non-compliance and gives industry statistics which highlight the affects that falls from heights have on workers, businesses and the general economy.
