Client: Frimley Park Hospital
Type of works: installed System 2000 to provide falls from height protection
Safesite has provided Frimley Park Hospital with falls from height protection in order to ensure safe access for maintenance and repair of plant and equipment situated on the hospitals roofs.
Safesite has worked with Frimley Park over the years to ensure roof safety throughout the hospitals site. The recent work has involved the installation of System 2000 as part of a ward extension in addition to the removal and replacement of previously installed systems whilst re-roofing work was being carried out.
System 2000 is the only BBA approved cantilever guardrail system and provides the ideal solution for where regular access is required. The guardrails freestanding design means that it does not need to be mechanically fixed to the roof itself. This overcomes the risk of damage to the roofs membrane which can cause water penetration, costly repairs and insurance invalidation.
The Systems freestanding design also meant that previously installed systems could be easily removed where re-roofing work was to be carried out and then re-installed once the work was completed. For areas where the new roof was higher, Safesite re-tested and then simply adjusted the System where required.
All Safesite operatives are fully trained in the safe installation of work at height solutions and are dedicated to providing a high level of service. Safesite remains committed to ensuring that work at height is carried out safely and offers advice and CPD training on the correct use of products, as well as compliance with the latest legislation.
