Enhancing Safety with KeeGuard Rooftop Protection System for a Plant Hire Company

Rooftop Protection is the cornerstone of Skyway Ltd’s reputation. As a distinguished construction and safety solutions company, Skyway Ltd is renowned for its expertise in delivering innovative fall protection solutions across various industries. Committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of both workers and property, the company has an impressive track record of successfully executing numerous projects in this critical field.

Project Overview

Skyway Ltd was approached by a Plant Hire company with a pressing concern regarding the safety of personnel who needed access to the roof surface for maintenance purposes. The client’s existing roof had a parapet wall, but it did not meet the required safety standards. As a result, an additional safety system was deemed necessary to mitigate the risk of accidents and injuries.

Challenges Faced:

Inadequate Parapet Wall: The existing parapet wall did not provide adequate fall protection for workers accessing the roof surface.

Solution Proposed:

After thorough discussions with the Plant Hire company, Skyway Ltd recommended the installation of the KeeGuard rooftop protection system as the most suitable solution to address the safety concerns. The KeeGuard system is a collective fall protection solution that provides a barrier around the roof’s edge, ensuring the safety of workers and preventing accidental falls.

Project Execution:

Skyway Ltd collaborated closely with the Plant Hire company to ensure the seamless execution of the project. The key steps involved in implementing the KeeGuard rooftop protection system included:

  1. Site Assessment: Skyway Ltd conducted a comprehensive site assessment to determine the exact requirements and dimensions for the KeeGuard system.
  2. Customized Solution: The KeeGuard collective fall protection system was customized to fit the specific needs of the plant hire company’s roof. This involved designing and manufacturing components to ensure a precise fit.
  3. Installation: Skyway Ltd’s experienced team installed the KeeGuard system efficiently and with minimal disruption to the client’s operations. The installation process was carried out with strict adherence to safety standards.
  4. Testing and Certification: Following installation, the KeeGuard rooftop protection system underwent rigorous testing to ensure its effectiveness and compliance with safety regulations. Upon successful testing, the system was certified for use.

Results and Benefits:

The implementation of the KeeGuard rooftop protection system yielded several significant benefits for the Plant Hire company:

  1. Simplified Safety: The implementation of the KeeGuard fall protection system provided the Plant Hire company with a collective protection solution that did not require additional training or the development of complex rescue plans. This simplicity eased the burden of compliance and ensured that personnel could safely access the roof without the need for extensive training.
  2. Efficient Installation: Skyway Ltd’s installation team quickly and seamlessly installed the KeeGuard system. This efficiency minimized any disruption to the client’s operations and the inconvenience to residents. The swift installation process allowed the Plant Hire company to maintain its normal workflow with minimal downtime.
  3. Discreet Solution: The KeeGuard system offered a discreet and aesthetically pleasing fall protection solution. Its design blended seamlessly with the existing structure, ensuring that it did not detract from the building’s appearance or disrupt the visual harmony of the surroundings. This discreet approach maintained the building’s aesthetics while providing essential safety.
  4. Enhanced Perimeter Height: The KeeGuard guardrail system provided an adequate perimeter height of 1100mm, significantly higher than the smaller parapet wall that previously presented a fall hazard. This substantial increase in height ensured that workers on the roof were well-protected, greatly reducing the risk of accidental falls and injuries.
  5. Peace of Mind: With the KeeGuard system in place, the Plant Hire company and its residents gained peace of mind knowing that a reliable fall protection system was in position, effectively safeguarding those who needed to access the roof. The system’s reliability and increased height provided an added layer of security and safety.
