Health and Safety

Site Surveys and Reports

Our Engineers are available on site, to assess your requirements and provide a recommendation for the correct safety equipment for your Roof. They can also map out a comprehensive method of installation, which may include:
  • Accessing  the roof with materials – Cranes, hoists, lifting equipment
  • Connection to existing Safety measures – Platforms, walkways, ladders
  • Reviewing ageing Safety measures and offering unbiased recommendations for a holistic cover

Inspections and Re-Testing

Whether it’s a full Roof Health and Safety assessment or an annual Re-inspection of existing provisions and equipment, our fully trained technicians are on-hand to support your health and safety compliance needs.
  • Fully Trained Technicians
  • Comprehensive reporting
  • Certification Provided

Permits to Work

The success of SURPRO’s comprehensive, yet easy to uses, Working at Heights Permit, has lead to the expansion of this group of Health and Safety documents. Permits to Work are now available in either bespoke or “of-the-shelf” formats for the following work types;  
  • Working at Heights
  • Confined Space
  • General
  • Hot Works
  • Electrical

Risk Assesment & Method Statements – (RAMS)

“The law requires that employers and self-employed contractors assess the risk from work at height and go on to organise and plan the work so it is carried out safely” – HSE

The process of gaining the correct information from a contractor regarding credentials, method of work, and any risk that work may involve, and how those risks are to be controlled, can become both a lengthy and frustrating process for both parties. It therefore stands to reason that a clearly formatted template, designed around your own very specific Health & Safety requirements, should be presented to the contractor for completion before any work commences.

Our Risk Assessments and Method Statements, capture the following information:

  • Contractor and Project details
  • Credentials
  • Pre-Work Checklist
  •  Sequence and Method of Works
  • Overall Risk Assessment, including review of risks and the safe management of such risks
  • Signature and Counter Signatures copies
  • As with all of our Health and safety documents, additional criteria can be added as per your specification

Rescue Plans

“For all work at height, emergency and rescue procedures need to be considered for reasonably foreseeable circumstances, such as stuck access equipment or deployed fall arrest, in order that a person or persons can be rescued.

The method selected needs to be proportionate to the risk and there should not be reliance on the emergency services. It may be simple such as putting a ladder up to a net and allowing a fallen person to descend, or pulling a worker hanging on a deployed lanyard onto the surface below. In other situations, consideration will need to be given to the use of other work equipment, such as MEWPs or proprietary rescue systems.

Whatever the situation selected, you should be able to demonstrate that if someone falls, that there are arrangements in place that are capable of rescuing that person and that those involved are trained in the procedures and the equipment required is available.” – Taken from the HSE website.

  • Consultants available to assess your current provisions and draft a bespoke rescue plan
  • Rescue plans can be incorporated into Risk assessments and Permits to Work

Safe Route Plans

To complete our Health and Safety Product range, Surpro can design a “Safe Route Plan” which is a visual map accompanied by  a clear set of  instruction, offered as part of Risk assessment / Permit to Work to identify demarcation routes, safe zones, safety products and the location of potential hazards.

In case of an emergency the Safe Route Plan is used as a vital tool for emergency services personnel, which in reality can save vital life saving minutes. 

  • Can be used in conjunction with Risk Assessments & Permits to Work for more comprehensive approach
  • Can assist emergency services in rescue operations
