The Working at Height Regulations 2005 (WAHR) have no minimum height requirement for work at height. They include all work activities where there is a need to control a risk of falling a distance liable to cause personal injury. This is regardless of the work equipment being used, the duration the person is at a height, or the height at which the work is performed. It includes access to and egress from a place of work.
Total Lift Scaffolding over the years has provided different types of edge protection handrail, to help our clients adhere to The Work at Heights Regulations 2005. Whatever the situation we strive to recommend and provide the most suitable edge protection needed for our clients and their specific projects.
Roof Mounted System Handrail
This system works when there is nowhere to drill and no standards can go from ground level up to roof height this has been a preferred system when working on schools.
"A" Frame Handrail
A temporary handrail forming guard rail built from ground up to create a safe working area on buildings, where you are not able to fix handrails to the perimeter of the roof.
When extra height is required to reach the roof level this rakered system requires scaffold framework to support it.
Hilti Bracket Handrail
This system works very well when needing to install temporary handrail either at height or when it is not permitted to place standards at ground level.
Hilti Tied Handrail
This system works well when there is no other way to keep the standards tied to the wall and keeping the profile low.
