We undertake the inspection of rooflight covers and fragile roof fall protection covers following the guidelines of PUWER legislation.
We provide a Compliance based inspection service as part of a Periodic Inspection regime / PPM for Rooflight Covers & Fragile Roof Fall Protection covers such as the MSA Latchways walksafe system which are designed as a form of collective protection.
“The Rooflight covers & Fragile roof Fall Protection covers are classed as a piece of work equipment & require regular inspection under The Provision & Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER). This can take the form of a regular visual inspection carried out by a competent person. In the event that an independent third party is required to undertake this inspection – Eurosafe Solutions can take on the role of the competent person.
PUWER regulation 6 specifies the circumstances where inspection is required to ensure healthy and safe conditions are maintained: one circumstance identified is… where work equipment is exposed to conditions causing deterioration liable to result in dangerous situations. Given the Roof light / fragile surface covers are typically located on a rooftop & serve to protect users from a fall hazard – it most certainly requires a regular planned inspection. Eurosafe are able to offer a inspection service for your Rooflight Covers & Fragile Roof Fall protection covers and implement it as part of a schedule of Planned Preventative maintenance PPM.”
