Kee Safety worked closely with a customer in the South of India to help maximise the safety of workers on the roof of their food and drinks manufacturing plant.
The process started with Kee Safety performing safety audits at 4 of their bottling plants in Southern India.
The customer’s main objective is to ensure their facility is completely safety complaint.
They had identified a safety hazard on the rooftop area (unprotected edges and skylights).
Kee Safety was able to offer a compliant solution by providing turnkey solutions including Kee Line horizontal lifeline system and Kee Cover skylight protection.
After the quote was agreed, the systems were quickly shipped to the site to be installed by one of Kee Safety’s approved local fall protection installers.
The modular, simple design of the lifelines fall protection systems and skylight covers meant they could be installed quickly, minimising downtime and maximising cost savings for the client.
The final result not only looks fantastic, but you can also clearly see how effective the systems will be in protecting the client’s employees from falls, guaranteeing peace of mind for everyone involved.
The Most Dangerous Hazard
Many people incorrectly assume that the most dangerous fall hazard is the edge of the roof. While very dangerous, people instinctively know to stay away from the edge. Skylights are more dangerous because they are often in the walking path of the people on the roof and many do not see them as a danger. Many skylights are fragile and could not support the weight of a falling person. Many fatalities happen when people fall THROUGH the roof, not necessarily over the edge.
