Risk Reduction - Anchor points, no harness required. No yearly inspections.
When designing Height Safety Access systems for clients we look at the hierarchy of control to work out which level of control is required. The best control is Elimination, to remove any risk of a fall from height or the need for someone to access things at height. The next is Substitution, provide alternative access means. Isolation, barricade of the services with guardrails so no risk can be reached and then Fall Protection.
With Air Conditioning systems requiring on going monthly inspections, the need for personnel to access roof top plant is greatly increased. As with most plant equipment they generally require additional chemical to keep them running. This increases risks due to manual handling of heady drums on potentially uneven surfaces.
Originally this site had anchor points and a access ladder with a safety line installed. However, due to the frequent access requirements and the need to carry the drums of chemicals for the plant and equipment, this was no longer a practical height safety access solution.
We recommend and carried out the removal of the access ladder with safety system, replacing it with a custom built access stairway. On the roof top, to provide safe access whist walking around the installation of walkways with handrail protection, where required. To remove the need to use the anchor points for height safety, guardrail was also installed around the roof top. The anchor points remained however as they can be used for Rope Access services to the facade.
The benefits of providing a higher level of controlled access, allows the for the access to the roof top, not just someone who has a working at heights ticket. It reduces on going maintenance costs as walkways, and guardrail do not require yearly inspections. Providing the right level is a balance between cost, frequency and future needs and uses.
