Working at height will always be a high risk activity.

Many different techniques and technologies are constantly being developed to reduce the risk of injury on site.

The example below demonstrates how one site achieved this:

  • With nearly 700 metres of bulkheads and a soffit height of 4.7m, a prefabricated solution has been devised to dramatically reduce the amount of time needed to work at height.
  • In 2.4m lengths, all board joints have been engineered with jigsaw locking detail and an edge trim which has totally removed the need for plastering, so only need decoration once erected.
