Bring your heritage building in line with 21st Century safety requirements

  • Share This Article

Older buildings can be incredibly beautiful and encapsulate the spirit of a particular age wonderfully well, unfortunately, older materials and designs aren’t necessarily the safest for workers and occupants. From asbestos through to a lack of suitable safety measures on roofs, stairwells and lifts, an older property often has fixtures and fittings from a bygone age, which just aren’t suitable for contemporary use. No matter what state your building is in, our company has the expertise to bring it into the 21st Century.

Have you considered height safety?

One of the most commonly neglected areas of safety provision is making sure that the roof of your structure is as safe as it can be. Even if your workforce doesn’t frequent the area, it is still important that service personnel, the maintenance crew, engineers and similar can work safely. We provide everything from anchor points through to ladders, handrails, walkways and more, enabling workers to navigate the roof safely and in a variety of different directions. Our team is able to work with you to design a system that’s right for your requirements (including your budget), then provide the installations needed to ensure compliance with the relevant legislation.

Sympathetic height safety to work with your building

We understand that when a building has heritage status, safety measures need to be as unobtrusive as possible, at the same time as being highly effective. We are used to dealing with buildings where appearances really do matter, which is why we provide solutions that are flexible enough to work on a wide range of different properties. As well as providing height safety equipment for an entire building, we can also come up with a system of scaffolding and/or height safety measures which are appropriate for monuments, towers and commemorative structures.

Height safety matters

If you want to protect the health and well-being of your workers, as well as ensure that your building is a safe place in which to work, modifying your roof to include necessary safety features is absolutely vital. There’s no need to completely replace your roof, in many cases, everything needed for a safe, legally compliant roof can be added retrospectively for less than you might think.
