Roof Safety Systems

Last Updated 21st February 2023

Almost all roof spaces require some sort of access for maintenance, cleaning, inspections and other works. It is important to ensure those who require access to the roof have a specific Roof Safety System to protect them whilst working at height.

What are Roof Safety Systems?

Roof Safety Systems can refer to anything from Walkway Systems, Anchor Posts, Safety Line Systems and everything in between. Roof Safety Systems can incorporate the access methods required to reach the roof and manoeuvre safely around the space as well as the protection needed to prevent falls from height occurring.

Heightsafe offer many types of Roof Safety Systems that can cater for all roof designs and specifications. Some roofs are more standard in design and the best option may be to install Collective Edge Protection, whereas some may be more complex, with various maintenance systems in place that must be navigated around, and so Walkway Systems and Step Over Units may be the preferred choice.

Similarly, the building itself may require a more sympathetic system that will not affect the aesthetics, such as a historic building that still requires a Roof Safety System to allow operatives to carry out necessary preservation works.

There are also instances where more bespoke systems must be designed to cater for multiple features on a roof that make a standard system not suitable; and Heightsafe always work closely with clients to create the perfect system for the site requirements.

Roof Safety System Testing and Inspections

Most Roof Safety Systems require Compliance Testing a minimum of once every 12 months, however this can be required more often depending on the frequency of use. Heightsafe have a dedicated Compliance division that specialise in testing, remediation and building maintenance, to keep your buildings and Roof Safety Systems safe, compliant and in good condition.
