How to detect fragile roofs

All roofs should be considered fragile until they’ve been deemed non-fragile by a competent person. According to HSE, a roof is or is likely to be fragile if:

  • It's made of fibre-cement sheets.
  • Rooflights are present. Beware of old or hidden rooflights.
  • There are liner panels on built-up sheeted roofs.
  • There are metal sheets on a roof. These are likely to corrode.
  • Glass is present (including wired glass).
  • Chipboard is present. This includes similar material that can rot easily.
  • Other materials such as wood wool slabs, slates and tiles are present.

How do you keep safe on a roof ?

  • If you can, avoid working on a roof completely. For example - where possible, try to replace roof sheets or lights from underneath, using a suitable work platform.
  • If working on a fragile roof is still needed, try to keep as safe as possible by using stagings, guardrails and fall arrest systems, as required.
  • Training workers is very important when working at height. Make sure that everyone knows how to use the products safely and that they are aware of all potential dangers of working on roofs.
  • Systems you can use:

    • Mesh walkways, Platforms, Walking frames, Skylight covers and guardrails.
