The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) is part of UK Research and Innovation – the UK body which works in partnership with universities, research organisations, businesses, charities, and government to create the best possible environment for research and innovation to flourish.
STFC funds and supports research in particle and nuclear physics, astronomy, gravitational research and astrophysics, and space science and also operates a network of five national laboratories, including the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory on the Harwell Campus, as well as supporting UK research at a number of international research facilities including CERN, FERMILAB, the ESO telescopes in Chile and many more.
STFC recently appointed Heightsafe to ensure their Working at Height systems are at the standard needed to guarantee safety within the Harwell Campus in Oxfordshire. This work will include undertaking a range of Compliance Testing and Surveying on various systems.
To ensure the safety of all workers, there is a necessity to carry out Compliance Testing from a height safety specialist. Testing will need to be carried out on the Roof Access Systems and Roof Safety Equipment, such as the Anchor Points and Safety Lines, ensuring personnel can complete any work at height projects safely and efficiently. Heightsafe will undertake thorough inspections and testing of the systems in place to ensure safety. After this, there will be a diligent site survey for Gutter Cleaning.
Why Compliance Testing is Important
Ensuring all of your Height Safety products are regularly inspected, safe and up to date is incredibly important. Heightsafe has worked diligently for over ten years to ensure the highest level of Compliance Testing has been carried out across the UK.
Heightsafe offer a variety of Compliance Testing solutions to meet the needs of each client. Testing can be carried out for Safety Lines, Mobile Man Anchors, Lightning Protection Systems, Wind Turbines, Roof Access Systems and Roof Safety Equipment. They also offer Gutter Cleaning Surveys. The services on offer are variable and Heightsafe always aim to provide flexibility to ensure safety across the client portfolio.
When Compliance Testing is requested, Heightsafe provides skilled personnel that have specific expertise in the system they are working with. For example, if Lightning Protection systems require testing, Heightsafe has a dedicated division for this. The personnel carry years of experience, including some that have received industry leading training from within the company.
