Eurosafe Solutions has reached dizzy new heights after winning a contract to work at the summit of Mount Snowdon.
The Sheffield firm has secured a five year deal with the Snowdonia National Park Authority to test wire access systems and eyebolts at a visitor centre and café which opened in June 2009 and is at the summit, 3,560ft above sea level – the highest point in the British Isles outside Scotland.
Eurosafe Solutions won the contract after having initially designed and installed fall protection systems on the summit.
Peter Trumper, head of property services at the Snowdonia National Park Authority, said: “This is a uniquely hazardous environment and planned scheduled maintenance is essential to minimise the risks to our staff and outside workers.
“We chose the wire access systems from Eurosafe Solutions when the building was designed as they had minimal visual impact on the building and the environment, yet they were very robust and met all our safety access requirements. We have been delighted with the way the building looks and how the access systems have performed in these conditions.”
Eurosafe director John Boyle said: “As many of our staff are keen climbers, this will be a job that all our team will want to do.
“By working with clients such as the National Park Authority, we aim to take away the headache of having to ensure that their systems are properly maintained, giving them peace of mind and minimising risks to staff and to a business.”
Eurosafe Solutions has worked on some of the UK’s leading landmark buildings.
