Our PPE certification
Three members of the Aquamark Cleaning team – Brad, Alasdair and Levi – have received their qualification to check all our PPE equipment, including the abseil systems and back-up devices. The certification enables us to meet the requirements of important legislation, including the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER), the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER), and the Working at Height Regulations (WAHR).
As part of our updated health and safety policy, we now use Papertrail to record all our PPE equipment checks and other safety inspections, such as anchor-point checks. This means that we can easily draw up a full report of your property (including images, certificates and dates) to see when we last checked your anchor points, ensuring the building is as secure as possible before our abseil team gets to work. As part of the inspection, our qualified team members will ensure that all items of safety equipment have the serial number printed clearly on them, and that the serial numbers are properly logged for identification reasons
With initiatives like our PPE Inspection Competent Person Certification and Papertrail, we are aiming towards certification from the Industrial Rope Access Trade Association (IRATA) – a highly respected organisation that offers training and accreditation for rope technicians who work at height. Gaining this will enable us to highlight our dedication to the safety of our technicians and our clients – something we pride ourselves on in every project we are involved in.
