Completed Project: Roof Repairs & Height Safety Project
SCOPE OF WORK
The major project works scope included the removal and reinstatement approximately 1000m2 of metal roofing & installation of an industrial fall arrest height safety system. The scope of works also included for minor mechanical works (Air-conditioning) new metal flashings & capping, installation of polycarbonate roof sheeting & other minor repairs to the roof.
The most critical task for the project was a crane lift with the use of an 80 tonne crane. This was challenging due to the fact the location (Mascot) is next to the Airport & the site are is a live occupied business centre. Murphy’s managed these OH&S risks through controls such as traffic management, notification to all relevant authorities & adequate personnel on site at all times. This was all detailed in Murphy’s Group Site Specific Management Plan.
The existing roof was leaking & required repairs works in various location across it. Murphy’s expertise & experience in this field meant that they were able to assist the building consultants in conducting the report in the condition of the roof.
The roof also did not comply with Australian Standards, as it did not have an industrial fall arrest height safety system installed. Due to the amount of plant & equipment on the roof (A.C Unit etc.) this was required.
The height industrial fall arrest height safety in which Murphy’s installed was compromised of walkways, safety access ladders, safety access hatches & surface mounted anchor points. The system was installed by Murphy’s qualified height safety technicians.
