Roofing Health And Safety Part 1

As a building owner or roofing Liverpool based company, what should you do regarding health and safety on your roof?

Before work starts:

  • Our roofing in Liverpool company would recommend that an assessment should be made. Importantly, it should be made made by a compent person.
  • Plan the work properly and in advance, using a contractor with sufficient expertise.
  • Specify non-fragile assemblies for new and replacement roofs.
  • After work starts: Make sure the contractors have adequate time to safely carry out the work once it begins
  • Ensure the planned safe system of work is implemented.

What is a safe system of work?

Avoidance

Obviously having the ability for workers to avoid going onto a roof at all is the preferable method. This allows profiled roof sheets and roof-lights to be fixed or replaced from underneath or from a platform.  This isn’t always possible and with domestic builds is rarely the case even with commercial.
