Safety audits of the existing facade access equipment in line with BS EN1808:2015 (Safety Criteria For Suspended Access Equipment), BS 6037 parts 1 & 2 (Code Of Practise For The Planning, Design, Installation, And Use Of Permanently Installed Access Equipment), and SAFed LG3 (Guidelines For The Thorough Examination Of Suspended Access Equipment And Building Maintenance Units), and continued asset management where arranged/required.

Conduct audits in line with the aforementioned documentation to determine the current portfolio assets, the types of equipment installed on each site, and the safety of both the equipment in use and access for maintenance of the installation. In addition check current documentation to ensure recommended levels of service are being conducted and equipment is up to date with additional servicing tasks as advised.

Site Survey and Audits 

All sites were visited over a period of three months and audits adhering to the client requirements conducted. The audit enabled construction of a portfolio database containing the current equipment types on each site, along with their ages, serial numbers and dates of load tests and periodic thorough examinations. These audits allowed us to make recommendations for improvements to elevate the current level of safety. It also enabled us to check the documentation held on each site for the suspended access equipment. From these checks we were able to ascertain any shortcomings and brief the client accordingly, ensuring they were aware of any health and safety issues, levels of maintenance and any general faults observed.

Client Reports

On completion of the audits, individual site reports were assembled and distributed to the relevant buildings manager and/or facilities manager. The reports highlighted any issues witnessed during the audits on both a maintenance/repair perspective and a health and safety perspective, including movement to/from and around the equipment. The detail obtained allowed us to advise the client on whether we believe the machinery was receiving the required maintenance and any recommendations to improve the equipment and/or installation. A risk assessment was conducted on movement to/from and around the equipment to highlight whether the parking or storage areas were sufficient for maintenance to be performed, whether there was risk to anyone associated with the equipment during access and whether the machinery was being utilised as initially planned. An audit of the supporting documentation on site and on various portals was also conducted, with recommendations being given as to what documentation should be kept, for how long and in what format.

Benefit to the Client

The audit informs the client of the physical state of the equipment installed and how it fairs from a health and safety perspective. This affords a forward planning opportunity in terms of life cycle of any installed equipment and whether any other health and safety issues require addressing to ensure sites and systems are as safe as practicably possible
