Guardrails and Handrails are commonly used to provide a collective edge protection for safely Working at Height, acting as a fall prevention solution. Whether fixed or freestanding, these systems are designed to provide safe access where regular maintenance or access is required.
It is recommended that Guardrail and Handrail systems used for Work at Height are inspected at least every 12 months. The weather can have a big impact on the stability of safety edge protection, and when exposed to excessive high winds and snow, rails can move and become detached at fixture points – it is therefore imperative to visually inspect the system regularly to spot any abnormalities.
Heightsafe’s specialists are the safe choice when it comes to work at height compliance, offering comprehensive inspection, testing and certification for all work at height systems.
