* Site Survey & Report
Legislation such as the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 and the Work at Height Regulations 2005 require employers and the self-employed to guarantee the safety of those not in their employment and to ensure that all work at height is planned for and carried out in complete safety.

In order to help you comply with this legislation and to determine the best solution for your requirements, ASP safety Ltd are able to carry out professional site surveys to identify your Work at Height Safety needs and determine the best solution for your requirements.

* 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 every 12 months as outlined in BS 7883:1997 and BS EN 365:1993. 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 re-certification service, ASP qualified engineers will not only inspect roof safety equipment but will also inspect and certify all PPE used in conjunction with this equipment, including harnesses and lanyards.

In addition to the re-certification, ASP 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.

Risk Assessment - Operation at Roof Level
Duty holders are required by law to ensure that all Work at Height is properly planned and organised. To do this you must carry out a full risk assessment for each of the individual procedures. Risk Assessments must be site specific and not generic.

The concept behind a risk assessment is to identify an activity, highlight the relevant hazards and significant identifiable risks and then put control measures in place to prevent an accident from occurring. Employers obviously need to carry out a Risk Assessment in relation to all operations.

Under the Work at Height Regulations a Risk Assessment should first look at the hierarchy of control measures:

Can the risk be eliminated - In other words does the work at height really need to be carried out?

If the work cannot be eliminated then can the risk of a fall be removed such as through the provision of guardrails?

If a fall cannot be eliminated then the distance and consequence of a fall must be minimised, such as through the provision of fall restraint equipment.

When carrying out a Risk Assessment you must also bear in mind that more injuries occur as a result of work at height below 2m and so assess all risks irrespective of height.
