Safety Line Installation for ABP Newport Manufacturing Facility


Client:

The Client

Associated British Ports have a network of 21 ports across the UK, providing leading facilities and equipment, operated by expert teams who can safely handle a wide variety of different cargoes. The Newport facility is the most easterly of ABP’s South Wales ports and handles £1 billion of UK trade annually, whilst supporting over 4,100 jobs nationwide.

The Newport facility is a recognised centre of excellence in the handling of steel and also handles dry bulks, renewable energy cargoes and forest products. As Wales’s leading general cargo port, the Port of Newport contributes £275 million to the economy and is a vital part of the supply chain for businesses across the UK.

The Brief

Heightsafe were approached to provide a bespoke Safety Line System, designed to guarantee safety for personnel working at height, across three separate roof areas, the main roof, office roof and canopy.

The Solution

Our engineers worked closely with the site manager to coordinate the installation of the safety line system on each of the different roof structures. Our unique system has been specifically designed for composite roof types with a maximum angle of 15°, this versatility allows the system to be installed anywhere on the roof deck.

The Outcome

Following the installation of the safety line system, it was inspected and tested according to EN795 Class C, ensuring the system is safe and complies with current British Standards. ABP Newport now have a complete fall arrest system, which guarantees safety for personnel accessing the roof for maintenance and cleaning.
