Since it’s publication as part of the Workplace (Health, Safety & Welfare) Regulations 1992 this legislation has required employers to ensure that glass within critical locations throughout their premises has been subject to a risk assessment to ensure that it meets a minimum safety impact standard.
Employers who fail to meet this legal obligation run the risk of costly litigation should an accident occur involving these glazed areas.
Regulation 14 can be complex and difficult to interpret for those not dealing with such issues on a daily basis.
Maidenhead Glass have many years of experience in providing accurate, unbiased guidance on this and other glass related safety legislation.
Maidenhead Glass offer a Regulation 14 reporting service. We can survey your business to check for compliance.
We will provide you with a report which details any problem areas including glass that does not comply with current legislation plus general glazing issues. This report will help you develop the most cost effective strategies for glazing management.
If you wish Maidenhead Glass to visit your organisation to conduct a Regulation 14 Survey please contact us online or call us on 01628 622 882 for an initial discussion about your situation. We will then advise if a site visit is required for a full Regulation 14 Survey.
