Safesite bespoke safety system at Darwin Shopping
The Darwin Shopping Centre in Shrewsbury now provides staff with safe access to recycling bins in the underground loading bay, after Safesite installed a bespoke safety system.
The Darwin Shopping Centre is the largest of the main shopping centres in Shrewsbury.
As with any large shopping centre, recycling plays an important part of the day to day running of the centre.
Four sections of the underground loading bay are used to house recycling bins for the stores.
These bins are located below an access walkway so that staff can drop their recycled rubbish into the corresponding bin from the walkway above.
After reviewing the process, the Centre’s operational manager, Russell Hall, identified that it was possible for staff to overbalance and potentially fall into the recycling bin or area below, so contacted Safesite for an effective solution.
Safesite’s System 2000 guardrail has been modified to allow the system to be bolted to the concrete walkways to provide a fixed safety system.
The system’s bottom rail has been placed at 600mm from the floor level in order to make it easier to dispose of plastic bags and boxes.
This allows shop assistants to pass the rubbish beneath the guardrail rather than climb up and drop the rubbish from a higher level which would pose a fall from height risk.
Safesite has a team of qualified engineers and designers who are able to adapt systems to provide a solution to virtually every requirement.
The company remains committed to ensuring that work at height is carried out safely and offers advice regarding compliance with the latest legislation as well as CPD, health and safety and product training.
Safesite’s bespoke Lifeline system provided discreet fall arrest solution for a new Jubiloo public convenience built near the London Eye.
Safesite’s COSHH Assessor Training course is ideal for those with a direct or indirect responsibility for the management of hazardous substances.
System 2000 freestanding guardrail, installed by Safesite at the Crawley campus of Central Sussex College, enables safe access to the roof for maintenance purposes.
Kee Klamp and Kee Access fittings from Kee Systems were installed to provide safe access to The Shed, a temporary theatre in front of National Theatre on the Southbank in London. Main contractors, Rise Contracts Ltd, specified powder-coated Kee Klamp and Kee Access components for internal handrail systems throughout the auditorium, plus galvanised Kee Klamp fittings externally to provide safe access for theatre visitors.
