Health & Safety Guidelines

Health & Safety must be adhered to.

A number of items within our Vitripiazza product range are heavy or awkward in shape to lift. We recommend that when moving pieces over 25kg, more than one person helps in completing the lift. With the larger plan sizes in some of our ranges, its simply not possible for installation to be carried out by one person and in addition, we would recommend you look into hiring or purchasing appropriate vacuum lifting equipment.

Furthermore, we would also recommend that gloves, safety boots with steel toe caps and oil resistant soles, ear defenders and protective clothing should be worn. When cutting our products, it is essential that suitable eye and ear protection is also worn. Always ensure that suitable respiratory protection is worn to avoid the inhalation of dust particles produced by high-speed cutting devices. Training may be needed to operate certain equipment; it is your responsibility to ensure this takes place where necessary.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you comply with all applicable health and safety legislation and guidelines.
