Roof Safety Audits
Roof Access WA provides Safety Audits and a Consultancy services throughout the Perth metropolitan area and regional WA.
We provide Safety Audits for both buildings that require access and buildings that already have a system in place. Audits on existing systems consider all roof access fixtures including walkways, guardrails, anchor points, static lines, ladder brackets, platforms and ladders.
With re certification we will note all items and tag for use, ladders, guardrails and roof anchor systems, including static lines and rail. These items are all commonly tagged for a 12-month period. But this can also be dependent on use and the manufacturer’s recommendations.
Our roof access audits look constructively at all building access requirements and consider all anticipated use. Our reports are easy to read and clearly identify each item by showing their location and status.
Roof Safety Consultancy & Solutions
Roof Access WA is here to help building managers stay compliant with the WA OH&S Act, Code and Regulations. Our methodical audit process satisfies the requirement ” to show Due Diligence” in recognizing any potential risk.
The Western Australian OH&S Act and Regulations state that there is a duty of care, “To Provide a Safe Workplace” which includes entering and leaving the site. The provision of a safe work place and the prevention of falls obligation begin with the building managers and filters down to the people working on the building.
Each individual building design has its own unique roof access requirements. Some access designs are simple while others can be complex.
Roof access risk is determined, using the same risk assessment matrix as a JSA or SWMS. The information attained from this risk assessment, helps to mitigate risk before the contractors get to site. It also allows the client to make informed decisions when prioritizing works. It can also help stage the provision of roof access if required.
