Maintenance & Recertification

Once equipment has been installed it must be maintained and examined at least once a year as outlined in BS 7883:1997 and BS EN 365:1993.

Safesite’s recertification service ensures our qualified engineers not only assess roof safety equipment such as life line systems and guardrails, but will also inspect and certify all PPE used in conjunction with this equipment, including lanyards and harnesses.

We can also carry out individual training helping to ensure that everyone using the safety equipment is correctly trained for its usage and how to check equipment such as PPE for any sign of fault before using it.

Safesite provides on-site height safety product and system training in addition to a range of RIBA and IOSH accredited health & safety training courses. These are run by experienced trainers and include Work at Height, Ladder Safety and Rescue. We also run both online and office based RIBA approved CPDs.

Safesite - Edge protection for solar panel maintenance

September 2020

Non-Counterweighted Edge Protection
Safesite has installed KeeGuard Premium at Hall & Woodhouse’s contemporary pub & restaurant in Portishead to allow safe maintenance of solar panels and plant installed on the roof.

Hall & Woodhouse is a family-owned company with over 250 pubs and restaurants around the country and brewer of the award-winning Badgers ales. The Portishead pub & restaurant’s design pays homage to the surrounding area’s heritage. Situated on the dockside, overlooking Portishead Quays Marina, Hall & Woodhouse Portishead is a strikingly modern building, constructed from 28 recycled shipping containers and was shortlisted in the Restaurant & Bar Design Awards.

Committed to reducing its impact on the environment, Hall & Woodhouse have installed solar panels on the roof the Portishead pub & restaurant in order to provide clean energy. As access would be required to the roof for general repair purposes as well as to maintain the solar panels, Colin Wood (Project Manager), contacted Safesite in order to find a safe solution.

Following a survey and assessment of the roof areas by Safesite, KeeGuard Premium edge protection was specified as it was able to deal with the limited space created by the installation of the panels KeeGuard Premium provided the perfect solution as it does not require counterweights along the full run of the system. This unique design is ideal for areas such as this where traditional counterweights are unsuitable or potential trip hazards are a concern.

Colin Wood commented on the installation, “Safesite’s KeeGuard Premium provides perfect protection for anyone working on the roof or solar panels and was able to deal with the limited space we have on the roof. The simplicity of the installation and on-going use and maintenance of the alternative harness systems was a major factor in the decision. There is the further benefit that if we expand the building to include accommodation, the system can simply be taken up and then re-installed onto the new roof.”

SAFESITE SECURES JONESCO PLASTICS ROOF

November 2019

SAFESITE SECURES JONESCO PLASTICS ROOF

Safesite, a supplier of fall protection solutions, has provided Jonesco (Preston) Ltd with a collective fall protection system that ensures maintenance teams accessing the rooftop are separated from hazards and all potential fall risks.



Jonesco (Preston) Ltd is a family-run manufacturing company with decades of experience providing reliable and durable rotational moulded solutions to over 60 countries worldwide. The main roof on the Preston HQ is a corrugated sheet roof that featured exposed skylights. Wanting to establish their working at height requirements in order to protect the maintenance team and outside contractors when working on the roof, Jonesco (Preston) Ltd contacted Safesite to conduct a site visit and survey.



Following the visit, Safesite proposed a protection system comprising of Kee Cover®, KeeGuard® Topfix and a KeeLine® system, to be installed on every roof apex, allowing for the easy removal and cleaning of roof fans. Included in the scheme was a riveted KDH3 around the roof access hatch, safe systems training and personal protection equipment (PPE) for use with the KeeLine system when lifting fans out for replacement.



"We can now rest assured that there is a safe and secure roof for maintenance to be carried out" comments Rob Mayor, QHSE Manager at Jonesco (Preston) Ltd. "Whether it be our own staff or outside contractors, they are now able to avoid any potential risks when working on the roof area "We wouldn't hesitate to work with Safesite again after experiencing first-hand their great service and products."



The KeeLine® horizontal lifeline system provides continual, handsfree protection for up to three users when used as a fall arrest system. The system is designed so that the traveller which connects the user to the systems simply glides over the system's brackets, overcoming the need to detach from the system. KeeLine also incorporates PAS (Progressive Absorbing System). If the user falls, the shock absorbers, intermediate brackets and support posts will deploy and deform so that the loadings applied to the building's structure is below 10Kn.



KeeGuard® Topfix comprises a base plate with multiple fixing centres which is fixed directly on to the profile sheeting by either rivets or non-penetrative two-part clamps and butyl sealing strip to maintain the roof's integrity. This unique plate design allows the system to be fitted to a wide range of profile sheet centres and provides a support for the vertical standard leg which can be adjusted from 0° to 11°. The horizontal rails are simply fitted to the open saddle fittings to provide a collective fall protection solution. It has been tested to EN 13374: Temporary Edge Protection Systems - Product Specification Test Methods and has been awarded a Class A Pass.



The Kee Cover® range of roof light protection provides an effective solution for protecting roof lights and skylights without blocking the light into the building. Kee Cover® is available in two formats, one where the cover is virtually flat to the roof surface, and one which is mounted on small legs so that it is raised above the roof light or skylight. This provides a greater distance between the mesh panel and the roof light so that the roof light is not damaged in the event of a fall.
