Gutter Guard Installers New Zealand at Gumleaf Gutter Guard are committed to following best-practice standards in all our installations and transactions. Our work practices and company ethics reflect our membership with the highly reputable and well-respected Gumleaf franchise, and we understand we are not only responsible to our clients, but also our fellow franchisees.
We are Site Safe certified, and this gives our clients the reassurance that we are qualified by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority to operate safely. We are also committed to following all jurisdictions for WorkSafe’s Working at Height guidelines as per the Health and Safety at Work Act, 2015, unit standard 15757 & AS: NZ 1891.4.2007.
The purpose of this document is to give us guidance on managing risk when working on roofs, including controls to prevent falls from roofs and the use of safety equipment.
Being certified as able to operate at height also means it is our responsibility to evaluate site safety and operate safely to protect our clients from any liability that would arise from an un-certified installer injuring himself on your property.
Gumleaf Gutter Guard Protection follow WorkSafe’s guidelines to ensure:
Identify hazards associated with working at height from or through the roof
Brittle roofing assessment
Assessment of the roofing materials
Safe access to the roof area
Other working at height hazards (for example, weather, electricity)
Establishing equipment and hazard controls for working at height
Safe working practice
Training and supervision
We recommend you take good care of your roof and gutters.
That’s good advice, as insurance companies generally have clauses in their policies requiring you commit to checking, maintaining, and upgrading your guttering regularly to avoid situations which cause flooding.
In our experience with affected clients, we’ve seen the annoyance and upset caused by having an insurance claim for water damage rejected when caused by a spouting blockage (accumulated leaf or debris etc).
The “reasonable maintenance and repair” and “take all reasonable precautions to prevent loss occurring” clauses that most insurance policies state are just two more reasons to have Gumleaf Gutter Guard installed.
For our part, we carry $2,000,000 of insurance to protect your property and other assets from an accident or any other problem inadvertently caused by us.
