Health & Safety

Whether having a couple of roof tiles replaced in Glasgow, guttering repaired in Aberdeen or replacing roof sheets in Edinburgh, customers are right to be concerned when it comes to health and safety obligations when considering undertaking roofing or building work at their property. We pride ourselves in taking health and safety extremely seriously at the Glasgow Roofing Service when choosing a roofing company to undertake building maintenance or roof work at your property it’s vital you can trust the tradesmen to act in a safe manner.

Regulations are not only in place to protect customers and tradesmen on site but to ensure all work undertaken is fit for purpose. Due to the extreme British weather that has developed in recent years, positive changes have been made to roof fixing regulations, known as British Standard BS 5534, these regulations require tiles to mechanically attached to roofs and was introduced in 2015, with the purpose of making roofs more secure.

All our expert tradesmen throughout Scotland comply with:

  • The Work at Height Regulations 2005,
  • Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015),
  • The Health and Safety at work Act 1974,
  • Building Regulations
  • Public Liability Regulations

Roofing can be dangerous if health and safety regulations are not respected. The most common accidents from working at a height come from falls from roofs and falls through fragile roofs. Our expert Health and Safety Managers must consider many variations to ensure safe working conditions for our tradesmen. The following are all requirements in law that you need to consider when planning

  • Take account of weather conditions that could compromise worker safety;
  • Ensure that the roof where work at height is to be undertaken is safe. Each area where staff will work at height needs to be checked before use.
  • Safeguard against materials or objects from falling or, if it is not within reason to prevent objects falling, take suitable and sufficient measures to make sure no one can be injured.
  • Store materials and objects safely so they won’t cause injury if they are disturbed or collapse;
  • Plan for emergencies and rescue, health and safety managers must think about foreseeable situations and make sure employees know the emergency procedures.
