About Australia Red Cross Blood Service

The Australian Red Cross Blood Service  is a branch of the Australian Red Cross and is the body primarily responsible for blood donation and related services in Australia. Australian Red Cross Blood Service employs around 3,700 employees across scientific, medical and support services, processing over half a million non-remunerated blood donors each year.

Height Safety Requirement

With a large office and an older style building construction, the Australian Red Cross Blood Service required safe roof access to clean gutters, access plant and equipment and general maintenance. Part of the requirement was installing abseil anchors so windows cleaners could safety clean the windows without the need to hire a EWP each time.

Recommended Height Safety Solution

With a extensive knowledge of all height safety regulations, standards and codes and balancing their budget constraints, Essential Height Safety recommended a roof safety solution that incorporated Roof Anchor Points, a Static Line System and Abseil Anchors. This enable safe access to the roof while maintaining the aesthetic appearance from the street.
