Is your Glazing Compliant?
It’s intrinsic to know and understand your responsibilities as an employer or building owner. If you’re in charge of a space either filled with people or where individuals pass through, you MUST consider the following:
- Initiate a full glazing audit & survey identifying glass types and safety ratings in critical locations. You will not have the information required in determining injury risk.
- Obtain a detailed report of work to be undertaken ensuring all glazing identified as unsafe for its location is upgraded.
- Act upon areas of non-compliance and instigate a monitoring programme to identify new risks.
- Regularly review the situation.
