PPE & SAFETY PRODUCTS
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is crucial in the construction industry. PPE is essential to ensure the safety and well-being of workers on construction sites. Roofing and building work can be hazardous, and without the proper protective equipment, workers can be exposed to various risks such as falls, electric shocks, flying debris, and exposure to hazardous substances.
In Western Australia, PPE is required by law to be worn by all workers on construction sites. This includes hard hats, safety glasses, earplugs or earmuffs, and high-visibility clothing. For workers on roofs, additional PPE such as safety harnesses, lanyards, and anchor points are also required to prevent falls.
Wearing PPE not only protects workers from injuries and accidents but also helps to reduce the overall cost of the construction project by preventing lost time due to injuries or accidents. It also improves the productivity of workers as they feel safer and more confident on the job.
The importance of PPE in roofing and building in Western Australia cannot be overstated. It is essential for the safety and well-being of workers on construction sites and is required by law. Employers and workers must take PPE seriously and ensure that it is worn correctly and consistently on every job.

Anchor fixings are essential in ensuring the safety and stability of roofing structures in Australia. They are designed to secure workers and prevent falls from heights during construction, maintenance, and repair work.
Anchor fixings come in various shapes and sizes, including eye bolts, D-bolts, and beam clamps, and are made from high-strength materials such as galvanized steel to withstand the harsh Australian climate. They are installed into the roof structure using specific fasteners, such as screws or bolts, and are tested to ensure they can withstand the required load.
In Australia, there are strict regulations and standards governing the use of anchor fixings, including the Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 1891.4:2009, which outlines the requirements for fall arrest systems and devices.
Anchor fixings are crucial for ensuring the safety of workers and complying with industry standards in roofing construction in Australia.
