Health and Safety

Safety for the both of us!

Prioritising Health and Safety is an integral part of our structure here at Cestria Roofing. We are regulated by HSE (Health & Safety Executive) and follow strict laws to enable a safe working environment for our team, and of course our customers.

Our fully competent surveyors will carry out full Risk Assessments on each contract so we are able to identify what measures are to be put in place to keep us all safe when working. 


With our line of work, as you can imagine our most common and most dangerous risk is Working at Height.  Working at height remains one of the biggest causes of fatalities and major injuries in the UK to date. This means we are very serious about making sure we are putting all possible Risk Prevention into place, this entails; 

  • all work at height is properly planned and organised
  • those involved in work at height are competent
  • the risks from work at height are assessed, and appropriate work equipment is selected and used
  • the risks of working on or near fragile surfaces are properly managed
  • the equipment used for work at height is properly inspected and maintained

- The Working at Height Regulations 2005 (More information can be found here below)

We take Health and Safety very seriously. We're also very keen to set a good example to people around us on how important it is to be safe at work. This is why you'll always see us wearing our protective clothing whilst we work

Scaffolding

The dreaded Scaffolding... we understand scaffolding is not very attractive to have sitting outside your home but it's the most important tool we have in our toolbox; not only does it keep our workers safe from harms way, but it allows them to do their very best work for you, as they can comfortable take their time on the task at hand. Scaffolding will be erected and dismantled to work around you. As part of our promise to you, we will always give you exact dates of when that will be.
