Provision, testing and certification of critical access and safety systems
We offer a variety of services and use only the most qualified engineers in the industry. Regular in-house and external training enables our engineers to keep up to date with industry legislation.
Locally-based teams ensure we are able to offer competitive pricing for all servicing jobs and to respond quickly to clients’ requests.
The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 (CDM 2007) place a duty of care on the designer to reduce the risks wherever possible.
As such, PTSG Access and Safety can provide advice and guidance for working at height practices on all types of buildings. We have experience in producing access strategies for new build projects, refurbishment projects, National Trust and heritage buildings.
As part of this service we can liaise with the architects, principle contractors, sub-contractors, etc. This can be done at early design stage, at design meetings through drawings, or during construction phase again through drawings and/or site surveys.
The role of the designer can involve many people during the inception of a project. Designers also need to consider the safety of those that will maintain, repair and clean the building as well as the safety of those that use it as a work place.
As part of our consultancy service, we liaise with our clients at the design stage and offer impartial input into the access strategy. This level of advice and consultancy can often provide long term savings over the building lifecycle in terms of maintenance, and can eliminate potential issues during the construction.
All designs can be backed up by our full CAD facilities.
The Health and Safety at Work Act places a responsibility on an employer to provide a safe place of work. With many existing buildings, certain areas may have been overlooked as “a place of work”. The roof and other working at height scenarios are often neglected.
PTSG Access and Safety can attend and carry out a survey of your place of work. We will discuss in depth the types of work that are currently carried out at height and from this initial survey we will produce a report of our findings and put forward our recommendations to bring your workplace into line with current legislation.
Any individual form of fall protection will require the end user to have the appropriate PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). With all our new installations, PTSG Access and Safety supplies the correct specification of PPE for use with the system to ensure maximum safety.
Some aspects of working at height require the user to have a certain level of competence. This level of competence can be increased by the provision of training.
In addition, HS(G)33 Health and Safety in Roof Work 1998 states that “adequate information, instruction, training and supervision should be given when a fall arrest system is used”.
Training sessions for both existing fall protection systems and our newly installed systems can be designed to accommodate the site-specific needs.
