We are still protecting people

The current movement restrictions in response to the ongoing COVID-19 situation in Sydney may be challenging, and that makes keeping people safe at work even more important.

Height Safety Engineers know that critical emergency repairs may still need to be undertaken in areas of a building where there is a risk of a fall. To that end, we have worked tirelessly to ensure that our technicians and installation teams are adopting the most stringent COVID-safe measures while attending to our clients’ sites.

While many buildings and offices are closed, with staff working from home, there are still large numbers of factories, warehouses and more open and operating, ensuring the continued flow of goods and critical supplies through Sydney and around Australia. These buildings need to be maintained and kept functioning.

Keeping HVAC and other building ventilation towers clean and operating normally is critical at the best of times. This is even more vital now, to assist in reducing transmission risks associated with COVID-19. If your building has cooling towers on its roof, you should ensure that anyone needing to access them can do so safely, using a compliant roof access and fall protection system.

Our experts are still on-hand to provide you with industry-leading safety advice alongside our fall protection system design and installation services.

If you already have a system on your roof, you should make sure that it has been inspected and recertified as compliant within the last 12 months. This will make sure any emergency repair work that may need to be undertaken on your roof can be done in a timely and safe manner without any hassle.

Workplace restrictions may result in some of your team members having to cover other areas of work not usually done in more normal times. Our trainers can provide adult education services to give your team with the skills and qualifications they need.

It remains vital that standard safety practices are still being followed. The risks associated with falls from height at workplaces are still very present and keeping your team and contractors safe is important.

Safety doesn’t stop, and neither do we. If you need workplace safety training, fall protection system advice or PPE supply, HSE’s expert team is ready to help.
