Fall protection specialist Eurosafe Solutions

Handrail, Walkway & Ladders

Collective protection systems such as Barriers, Guardrails, stairs, walkway and permanent access ladders are an essential choice when considering fall protection.
Eurosafe Solutions provides a comprehensive Testing & Inspection service, which ensures that your fall protection system is as safe as possible, protecting workers and reducing risks to a building owner or FM provider.
 
The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (P.U.W.E.R) 1998 require the "Duty Holder" to ensure that any work equipment provided is;
 
1. Suitable for use, and for the purpose and conditions in which it is used
2. Maintained in a safe condition for use so that peoples Health and Safety is not at risk; and

3. Inspected in certain circumstances to ensure that it is, and continues to be safe for use.

It is the duty holder’s responsibility to ensure that prior to use, equipment provided is inspected by a competent person.
 
Our directly-employed and fully trained engineers have extensive expertise in carrying out inspections of collective protection systems to ensure maximum safety for your staff and contractors.
Upon successful completion of the inspection, they tag each item of equipment, giving it a unique reference number. Our engineers then prepare certification for each item inspection and provide you with a comprehensive report of our findings.
 

The Working at Height Regulations 2005 (WAHR) recommend Collective Protection Equipment as the first choice when it comes to specifying fall protection equipment. The reason being that the Health & Safety Executive recognizes that Collective Protection Systems require a low level of user competence.

As a result, it is important to ensure that the equipment provided to protect against the fall hazard is fit for purpose, as it is likely that the end user will not have the experience to identify the hazard. It is therefore essential to have your Collective Protection Systems inspected on a regular basis, by an experienced company, such as Eurosafe Solutions, which provides peace of mind and reduces risks to workers.
