Scaffolding Health and Safety Northland

Taking health and safety seriously is required by law – and we at Summit do. Summit Scaffolding Northland have elected to take their health and safety policies to a higher level than the standard required by law. It’s a difficult task to achieve but part of our company policy and for a Company so well supported by SARNZ (Scaffolding, Access and Rigging New Zealand Inc) and Site Safe NZ it can be as easy as ticking off several boxes.

Summit’s dedication to supplying and installing a superior product which is well above standard requirements confirms their allegiance to the SARNZ Good Practice Guidelines 2016, which they surpass. Being ISO 9001 certified themselves SARNZ’s operational directives are a NZ WorkSafe document (covered under the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015) which includes all health and safety requirements for the erection and dismantling of scaffolding in New Zealand.

By carefully understanding the industry prerequisites for health and safety practices ensures our clients that the process and procedures maintained by Summit in the erection of scaffolding, shrinkwap, edge protection and containment are paramount. Our systems allow us the flexibility and capability to supply our customers any access solution to any project in the safest possible manner.
