Sayfa Group installed a broad range of height safety equipment at various Westfield Shopping Centres for their client, Scentre Group.

As the owner and operator of 39 Westfield Shopping Centres across Australia and New Zealand, Scentre Group engaged Sayfa Group to provide solutions that would keep their properties compliant and their workers safe when working at height.

With a huge duty of care across a massive portfolio, Scentre Group sought to prioritise height safety throughout their operations.

"Scentre Group realises that height safety is complex and Sayfa's design assistance ensures them that their systems are meeting all regulations and standards."

Shopping centres typically have a large amount of roof mounted plant that requires regular servicing. This necessitates access to the right height safety equipment by employees, contractors and sub-contractors when working at height. As Scentre Group manages every aspect of their portfolios from concept, design and construction to leasing and asset management, they needed to partner up with a company that could handle every stage of their properties with them.

Prior to any installation, Sayfa carries out extensive consultations to address all the requirements for new construction as well as recertification and auditing on existing buildings.

Sayfa products used at the Scentre Group shopping centres included ALTO step ladders and bridges, KATT modular rung ladders, PACE600 walkways, PROTEX skylight protectors, SENTRY guardrails, SPEKTRA signs, TRAVEL8 static lines, and proprietary anchors.

Since these height safety systems would be used frequently, ease of use was a major consideration in the selection of the equipment. This would also allow operators to easily access instructional documentation, maintenance requirements and compliance information.

Sayfa's comprehensive operation manuals, which are supplied with their systems, ensure peace of mind to the client that the highest possible duty of care is maintained for all personnel.
