Fall Protection


Fall Protection Solutions

With falls from height being the most common cause of fatality and serious injury in the workplace fall protection is vitally important and Arco Professional Safety Services can help make this a safer environment.

Falls can occur from the edges of roofs, through gaps or holes in roofs, through corroded roof sheets and through fragile roof materials such as roof lights. Falls from height can also happen to people maintaining, cleaning, demolishing and inspecting buildings, industrial plant and machinery.

Most roofs require safe access for maintenance, inspections and roof works so it is important to consider the right roof safety system for the type of roof, and work that is being carried out. Examples of situations where rooftop fall protection is needed include:

• Roof Access: Access via ladders and roof hatches
• Roof Edges: Access required for gutter cleaning, leakage checks, inspection and maintenance to the rest of the roof
• Roof Plant: Air conditioning units, satellite dishes and solar panels all need regular checks
• Walkways: Walkways should be accompanied by a fall protection system
• Rooflights: Fall protection required for cleaning and maintenance

Under the Working at Height Regulations, there is a legal duty of those in control of the premises (the Duty Holder) to do all that is possible and physically practical, to ensure the safety of operatives and prevent falls from height. Employers and employees should consult the Hierarchy of Control and consider whether an alternative way to complete the work, or an alternative form of access, would be safer. It is always best to try and eliminate the risk and find a way to complete work from a ground level, if possible.
