Roof Survey and Risk Assessment being carried out in a safe and secure manner due to fall protection harness equipment

Fall Protection Risk Assessment

The Work at Height Regulations purpose is to prevent death and injury caused by a fall from height.

The regulations apply to employers and anyone who instructs/contracts others to work at height. All work at height should be adequately planned and performed by competent and trained people. The correct choice of equipment is extremely important in reducing the risks.

Altus Safety can provide expert assistance by means of a site survey or fall protection risk assessment. This could be for any project from a current new build to an existing building.

Altus Safety can provide either free surveys which are suitable for relatively small areas such as single roofs or commissioned surveys which can cover large or multiple sites. Please feel free to discuss your requirements for a working at height risk assessment with our staff for more information.

A working at height risk assessment is the first step in protecting people:

  • Identify the hazards
  • Decide who might be harmed and how
  • Evaluate the risks and decide on precautions
  • Record your significant findings
  • Review your assessment and update if necessary

Keeping Safe with a Working at Height Risk Assessment

As part of fall protection risk assessment, we will work with you to identify your specific access requirements by looking at which fall protection systems are currently in place at the moment and whether they comply/are suitable for the tasks being undertaken safely. It is also important for us to understand how often access will be needed, what the competency of users is and number of the people accessing the areas at any one time.

Once the fall protection risk assessment has been completed Altus Safety can provide a full report including images in an easy to understand document to inform you of our findings.

We can also include a detailed proposal of any actions that are needed, complete with information on solutions recommended, training and PPE for users, product compatibility with your building and roof, fixing details, design layouts as well as a cost estimate.

As part of the working at height risk assessment report, we will also take into consideration the safe completion of any works we will need to carry out including access requirements, delivery of materials and current activities at the site.

Through communication with our clients we can then help with prioritising certain aspects of works to be undertaken to suit budgets as well as offering advice on short term safety options for areas to be protected at a later date.

Our flexible approach means that we can assist with bespoke solutions to the most complex height safety problems to ensure our clients are safe and compliant at all times.
