THE ARMY RESERVE CASE STUDY
from Premier Garage Equipment
About our client
Our engineer visited the site and carried out a digital risk assessment to establish the extent of works required. His recommendation was to replace all the laths (the horizontal metal slats which make up the main structure of the door).
The estates office agreed with our recommendations and gave us the go-ahead to carry out the works as required.
How we managed the project
On the day when the work was due to start, our engineers arrived on site to carry out a final risk assessment. Barriers were erected around the door to ensure a safe working environment for the PGE team and all Army Reserve employees.
We then assembled a mobile aluminium tower at the correct working height needed to safely carry out works to the door. At PGE, we ensure that all our technicians who may need to use mobile towers are PASMA trained and certificated.
New laths with new end locks and a new bottom T-section were fitted and the barrel was re-tensioned appropriately. After thorough testing, our technicians refitted the canopy and retested the entire door to ensure it was fully operational. We also tested the original safety pins which were still in good condition and checked that the required signage, with instructions on how to operate the door, could be clearly seen.
All documentation was completed and signed with electronic copies provided to the client.
