  • Do you require fall protection whilst installing solar panels?
  • Are you aware of the NSW code of practice for safe work on roofs?
  • Are you putting your installers and your company at risk?

NSW 2009 Safe Work Code of Practice

The NSW code of practice 2009 states that any roofs that have a pitch greater than 26 degrees must have a platform of at least 450mm at gutter height. The basic handrail or edge rail system often used for this type of work is not acceptable.

This area has been highlighted below and clearly states that a scaffold is the only option.
