Roof work is inherently dangerous, and although it is important to protect the edges of buildings, more falls actually occur through the roof than over the edge. In fact, nine people are killed each year in the UK due to falls through fragile roofs. The most common sites for fragile roof falls include factories, warehouses, and farm buildings.
The only way to minimise the risk of fragile roof falls is through proper planning, and the use of correct equipment. At Easi-Dec, we design and supply a range of effective roof work safety solutions to prevent falls through fragile roofs, keeping contractors and tradesmen safe.
