Health and Safety: Summit Scaffolding Waikato are health and safety personified

Scaffolding Health and Safety, any company that works at heights of over a hundred metres or more must have pertinent health and safety knowledge at the ready. The reasons are fairly obvious, and Summit’s PCBUs (Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking) are proud of the level of success in this area achieved to date.

Dedication to every aspect of the work ethics expected from the SARNZ Good Practice 2016 Guidelines and Site Safe NZ means Summit can confidently tick-box mandatory health and safety requirements for every job. These H&S guidelines are a Worksafe NZ document (under the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015) covering the construction, erection, dismantling, and use of scaffolding.

Detailed health and safety knowledge and communication between all affected personnel is paramount

Summit’s processes flow like a well-oiled machine. From the first point of client contact to the dismantling of scaffolding at the end of each assignment, our team know exactly how to perform. Detailed health and safety knowledge and communication between all affected personnel allow Summit to move forward on projects promptly, unhindered by unforeseen issues.

To make progress in such a cohesive manner, our team members undergo extensive training. We run a top-class training program and employment contract system which has cultivated a competent team of certified scaffolders and National Certificate in Advanced Scaffolding-certified supervisors. In addition, we also offer training qualifications such as First Aid, Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWP), and Confined Space which help Summit meet our obligations under the Health and Safety in Employment Act 1992 (HSE Act), and the Health and Safety in Regulations 1995 (HSE Regulations).

For example, preventing falls when working at height means assessing risks and hazards, accessing the correct equipment to use, and planning a safe approach with robust systems in place.

For Summit, this might include PPE, edge protection, temporary work platforms, total restraint systems, harnesses, or nets – all tools which give us the capability and flexibility to supply access solutions to any project in the safest possible manner.

We are obliged to follow through with compliance on:
• The Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 (HSWA)
• The Health and Safety in Employment Regulations 1995 (HSE Regulations)
• Health and Safety at Work (General Risk and Workplace Management) Regulations 2016 (GRWM Regulations)
• SARNZ Good Practice Guidelines for Scaffolding in New Zealand 2016.
