Problem to solve
The gas and heating services company were aware that they needed a working at height risk assessment for flue installations via roof access and for other work from ladders and roof inspections. Already an existing retained customer of Safewell they contacted us to discuss their specific requirements for working at heights.
Safewell accompanied the heating engineers on site visits to carry out a working at height risk assessment on the work carried out which included flue installations. The assessment identified several potential solutions to reduce risks from working at height and accessing roofs and helped arrange some demonstrations of possible alternative safer work equipment. Safewell also prepared a staff Working at Height Safety Handbook to support new safe systems of work put into place for ladder use, roof access and flue installations.
