Health & Safety
Health and Safety is of paramount importance and here at Introland we take it very seriously.
Every year, around 50 people are killed falling from heights whilst working on sites. Indeed, over 40 per cent of all major injury accidents involve ‘falls from heights’. Roof work, including work on fragile roofing materials, can be very dangerous and some fatal and serious accidents are attributed to this.
However, these hazards exist on any working platforms, scaffolds, ladders, flat and pitched roofs, open steelwork and any area where work is being done in proximity to skylights, openings, holes and unprotected roof edges.
Introland can carry out your site specific risk assessments to identify hazardous and dangerous work areas where working at heights is necessary. Any works carried out by Introland conform to all current British and European Standards and Regulations to ensure that your workplace remains safe and compliant.
