Safesite has provided Wolverhampton Wanderers FC with a bespoke rooftop safety solution to allow the Club to video training sessions safely at height.
Wolverhampton Wanderers’ training premises at the Sir Jack Hayward Training Ground, has recently undergone significant redevelopment to enhance the players’ facilities and to create a ‘Category 1’ Academy. In order to learn as much as possible from training sessions, the Club wanted to be able to video the sessions from multiple angles, including from a flat roof area that is accessed via an office.
Following a site survey, Safesite proposed a comprehensive solution which included the installation of a bespoke step-over to allow safe passage from the facility’s office balcony onto a Kee Walk walkway which offers a demarcated route to the flat roof area where the filming takes place. KeeGuard guardrail systems have been installed to provide edge protection to the exposed edges of the roof.
The installation has been completed with the construction of a fully guarded bespoke access platform to provide clear visibility of the pitches so that filming can be carried out in complete safety, giving the Club an invaluable overall perspective of the training sessions.
The Kee Walk walkway provides an anti-slip walkway for staff to access the video platform safely, even in wet weather, while the fully guarded platform provides collective height safety, overcoming the need for restrictive protection such as harnesses and lanyards while filming.
