Throughout the countries where Bettersafe International supply our products we are regularly contacted by our installer partners for advice on systems they are doing inspections and maintenance on.
We have images sent to us from installers where they feel they should be failed, or purely for our information on what they are witnessing in the field. They include corrosion of fixings, plates, posts and components.
Most of them are in environments where you would not expect it, such as on a roof top in the centre of a city away from manufacturing plants and the coast.
Many systems can show signs of corrosion even in normal situations. Roof Angel is manufactured from high grade materials that are designed to never corrode in normal circumstances, with the use of high grade aluminium, stainless steel and polyurethane being the only materials used in the construction of the system.
We know our installers can be confident that their system manufacturer supplies a system that will not rust.
Managing work at height follows a hierarchy of controls – avoid, prevent, arrest – which begins with the question – can the work be done safely from the ground? Fall arrest should only be considered as a last resort if other safety equipment cannot be used.
Working out what process or equipment you need can be difficult and sometimes confusing.
Where can Bettersafe International help you provide the necessary and safest form of fall protection? The easy to follow illustrations below can take some of the confusion out of your decision making.
