Prior to commencing any works on site a detailed site investigation is carried out to assess all potential risks and hazards.
A site specific works method statement is then produced which outlines in detail :
The procedures involved in establishing and removing the nets:
guidance notes for the client to enable them to familiarise themselves with:
- general recommendations for the installation and use of safety nets
- the role of the roofing contractor, or main contractor
- the role of our company in establishing and removing the net system
- agents likely to damage the nets
- site inspection ie: checking that nets are rigged correctly
When the nets have been installed and inspected by our team and a handover certificate completed by our certified rigger, the client can then commence works above the safe area of the net.
A project specific Health and Safety Manual is also prepared prior to rigging of nets, the manual including the following :
Identification of Specific Work Areas in which the Nets are Installed
Hazard Register / Analysis of Specific Work Areas
Personal Safety Equipment Registers
Serious Harm Flow Chart identifying Procedures to be Followed in the Event of Serious Harm Accident
Investigation Flow Chart
Site Specific Induction Form
All of our safety documentation has been produced in such a format as to ensure that it complements the overall site safety policy and manual that the Principal Contractor is required to establish on all projects.
