When climbing on and off a roof, there is a high possibility you’ll slip or fall. Providing safe egress and ingress for workers is critical, and we can help.
Access points are the most frequented hazard on any roof. Your workers are exposed to this risk twice every time they enter and exit a roof to perform tasks. OSHA and EU regulations require ladders and roof hatches to be equipped with self-closing safety gates and safety compliant guardrails to reduce the risk of someone falling as they step onto or off a roof. We’ll work closely with you to complete a fall protection site survey so you can ensure everyone is as safe as possible.

EN 14122 – Safety of machinery – permanent means of access to machinery – Part 4 – Fixed Ladders, states that: “To prevent falling through the access opening at arrival areas the opening shall be provided with a gate. It also states that at “drop edges of arrival areas”, a Guardrail should be provided at least 1.5m either side of the ladder, or if the drop edge is less than 3m in length, then one should protect the entire edge.
Each employee is protected from falling into a ladderway floor hole or ladderway platform hole by a guardrail system and toeboards erected on all exposed sides, except at the entrance to the hole, where a self-closing gate or an offset must be used.
The European Directive 89/391/EEC - OSH "Framework Directive" was introduced to allow member states to introduce legislation in relation to Health & Safety when working at height.

A truly comprehensive rooftop solution follows the Hierarchy of Fall Protection. An expert starts by inspecting the roof site for potential fall hazards. From there, a complete system solution and recommendations are created that descend down the four levels of the hierarchy, from simple, sensible approaches for eliminating risks all the way down to lifesaving personal protection systems.
Collective Fall Protection Systems require no additional training to use. Work Restraint and Fall Arrest Systems both require a high level of user competency, training and additional inspection to be used properly.
