When it comes to workplace safety equipment, correct installation is essential. Cutting corners and rushing to get the job done could result in fatal safety risks. So, is it worth learning how to install edge protection yourself? Or would our qualified engineers be more effective for employee protection?

In this article, we discuss the benefits of self-installation and the advantages of installation by experts to help you decide the best route for your project.

What are the Advantages of Self-Installation of Safety Gates?

Installing safety gates yourself offers your colleagues an opportunity to become trained and certified for 12 months. This means that no matter how many times you may need to dismantle or re-install your safety gates, you have the flexibility to do so and ensure your on-site workflow is not interrupted. 

At Safegate, we offer a training course run by our specialists either on your site or ours, to impart the knowledge and expertise you need to install your safety gates yourself and maximise workplace safety. 

Ensuring your operatives are competent to install the protection guarantees a safer workplace. Our 4 hour course in Proprietary Edge Protection will provide your staff with an understanding of not only how to install your safety gate, but to identify when there’s a problem. 

This course can be completed alongside an Edge Protection Federation course, which opens the doors to a qualification in the ‘Specialist Work at Height’ Blue Skilled Worker CSCS Card. 

Essentially, choosing self-installation over installation by our experts can provide your employees with a number of qualifications that can lead to greater opportunities. All while allowing them to become familiar with the Safegate system to increase workplace safety.

What are the Benefits of Installations Carried out by CJS Safety Systems?

The primary benefit of choosing a Safegate operative to install your safety gate system is that you don’t have to concern yourself with the process. 

We understand that certain periods are especially busy, and there isn’t much time to spare. Especially on an active construction site. Which is why we offer an installation option; so you can continue working while we take care of the additional safety measures.

We also recognise the responsibility that installing workplace safety equipment holds, and realise that some businesses prefer to have their systems installed by experienced operatives. So if you can relate to this, you can rest assured that we’re happy to take care of everything for you. 

Here at Safegate, our installation engineers are highly experienced and hold several qualifications. These include being cardholders for the Edge Protection Federation. Which represents the hours of training necessary to successfully install safety gates.
