Health and Safety Commission guidelines now include 'Falls from Height' in their eight Priority Programmes chosen to meet the targets for the reduction in injury rates in the workplace.
This also means that safety precautions are increasingly important for high level flat roofs, gantries and exposed areas.
Because of awareness of personal injury risks, Crossgrip matting is widely specified as the ideal solution for providing permanent and safe walkways for accessing and maintaining roof top services. This means that safe access is available at all times and in any weather, including severe conditions of wind, ice and snow. The matting also protects the roof membrane from pedestrian traffic.
The safety matting has a deeply etched open grid surface which provides permanent slip resistance even in the worst weather conditions. The matting is self-draining, resistant to bacterial growth and maintenance free. Because of its flexible construction, it is easy to lay and contour and, as wind tunnel tests prove, is permanently stable even in hurricane force winds.
