Health and Safety by Burnley Roofing

At Burnley Roofing we really know the importance of health and safety in the work place. The images below detail some of the specialist equipment we use to provide safe means of access and adequate fall protection when working at height.

Working at Height

Falls from height are the most common cause of fatal injury and the second most common cause of injury to employees, accounting for 10% of all such injuries. As a result, in April 2005 the HSE produced the new Working at Height regulations.
