Selecting The Right Equipment For Working On Roofs

Working on roofs is dangerous. Statistics show that working at heights is a leading cause of death and serious injury in Australia,  with the greatest number of fatalities resulting from a fall from a roof. Preventing falls from roofs is a priority for Safe Work Australia and they expect employers and contractors to manage risk when it comes to preventing falls. Hazards to consider include

  • Unprotected edges
  • Fragile surfaces, skylights, holes or vents
  • Weather conditions (wind, rain etc)
  • Trip hazards
  • Steep pitched or sloping roofs.

PREVENT FALLS WITH TEMPORARY EDGE PROTECTION

Hazard assessment includes selecting the right equipment to prevent falls from roofs. Edge protection systems like those supplied by Raftarail isolate the height hazard and minimise the risk of falls. Our unique sacrificial system does not impact on the new roof whilst being installed and enables all trades to complete their work around the safety rail without interruption. Our height safety edge protection system is easily installed and removed,  so you don’t have to lose valuable time on your construction project.
