What you need to know about Roof edge protection in Brisbane

Queensland has strict and specific laws surrounding working from heights in construction and other industries to ensure the safety of workers. There are specific provisions when working on roofs that determine the type of height safety required.

According to health and safety regulations, guardrail systems must be used in housing construction work when there is a potential fall of more than 3 metres, other construction work (e.g. painting, solar, insurance) when there is a potential fall of more than 2 metres, and roofing work when on any roof or partly completed roof surface with a slope not exceeding 26 degrees. This includes gable ends and porticos.

Safe access is always required for workers working at height. Edge protection must always be setup with easy accessibility to the roof or platform, and without the need to climb over the top rail or mid rail.

Guardrail systems should always contain top, middle, and bottom rails or toe boards. When using toe boards in place of bottom rails, the toe board must be able to withstand heavy weight loads caused by impact.

A bottom rail must be fitted at least 150mm but not more than 250mm above the base surface. Alternatively, a toe board, which is an upright timber or metal board securely fixed in place at the edge of the surface, must be at least 150mm high and installed below all rails.

The clear gap between rails should not exceed 450 mm, and the distance between a mid-rail and a toe board or bottom rail should be no more than 275 mm. It's also important that there is no gap larger than 100 mm between the roof edge, including the gutter, and a guardrail positioned outside the roof line.

On top of this, the clear distance between the roof cladding and the bottom rail should be at least 150 mm but no greater than 275 mm. The guardrail height above the roof surface must be at least 900 mm, and for roofs with a pitch over 10 degrees, this height should be measured from a point 300 mm inside the roof edge.

For surfaces with slopes exceeding 26 degrees, sturdy mesh, sheeting, or other materials must extend upwards at least 900mm from the base surface or toe board.

Our team ensures your temporary handrail hire will adhere to these guidelines and help you create a safer environment for your workers, significantly reducing the risk of falls and injuries. Implementing a robust safety rail system is not only a regulatory requirement in QLD but also a critical component of maintaining a safe and secure construction site.
