Additional Information

All you need to know about this solution...

On average 7 people each year are killed after falling through a fragile roof or fragile roof light. These accidents usually occur whilst operatives are carrying out routine maintenance activities on roofs of factories and warehouses.

Overtime skylights can become brittle and discoloured, and can even blend in with the surrounding metal profile roof sheets in bright sunlight, further increasing the chance of walking onto the fragile surface.

Testing/Inspection standards and frequency:
The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (P.U.W.E.R) 1998 – minimum of every 12 months by a working at height specialist company.
