Roof Handrail, Guardrail, Balustrade & Barrier Inspection

Guardrail Testing Services

Collective protection systems such as handrails, guardrail, balustrades, and barriers are an essential choice when considering fall protection.

Following the hierarchy of control, collective measures such as guardrails and edge protection should be considered prior to looking at individual protection.

Within the workplace, these items are classed as work equipment and therefore come under The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) 1998 which require the duty holder to ensure that any work equipment provided is:

  1. Suitable for use, and for the purpose and conditions in which it is used.

  2. Maintained in a safe condition for use so that people’s Health and Safety are not at risk; and

  3. Inspected in certain circumstances to ensure that it is, and continues to be safe for use.

It is the “duty holder’s” responsibility to ensure that prior to use, the equipment provided is inspected by a competent person and maintained so as not to put people at risk.

Our directly employed and fully trained engineers have extensive expertise in carrying out guardrail testing, handrail load test and inspections of collective protection systems to ensure maximum safety for your staff and contractors. They can also assist in testing handrail strength should there be concerns raised on its integrity or as part of a third-party independent testing requirement.

It is essential to have your collective protection systems inspected regularly by a competent company, such as Eurosafe to ensure all equipment is safe for use and compliant with relevant standards and regulations.

These inspections provide peace of mind and help reduce the risks to workers and the “duty holder”.

Frequency of inspection

The Working at Height Regulations (WAHR) 2005 & The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) 1998 both state that collective protection should be inspected & maintained by a competent person; this should be a frequency not exceeding 12 months.
