Does your premises comply with Health, Safety & Welfare Regulations 1992?
Low-level Glazing Safety
From the first of January 1996 unprotected glazing in high risk areas of your workplace may well be illegal, according to the Health & Safety Regulations 1992, (Regulation 14)
From this date onwards glazing must be made safe where there is vulnerable glass in Critical (working or public areas, i.e. waist height in glazed screens and shoulder height in doors).
However there is one simple and cost effective way to ensure that you are prepared for the future, without the drastic expense of fitting laminated safety glass.
Critical locations are defined as: Glass in doors or side panels that begin within 1500mm of finished floor level and, glass in walls or partitions that begin within
800mm of finished floor level.
