In real glazing jobs, a lot of customers call a glass company 08000045277 or 080000GLASS, and ask”We have a broken window, it is about a size of 700mmx1000mm, how much it is?”
As a responsible glazing company, we normally will ask the customer”where is your broken window in your house? Ground floor or 2nd floor?”, If the answer is “2nd floor”, then we will ask “Please give us more information such as a picture of the broken window and its surrounding, where is your address and we will visit your place.” Or we will ask the customer to email the inquiry and images to us at [email protected]. Key word: working at height in New Zealand
Why we need more information about your broken windows at 2nd floor?
A simple answer is: Glazing job must be done under Health&Safety condition and abide by NZ law. Most window jobs can only be done outside of your house. There are more sophisticated answers, but behind those are to keep glaziers in a safe job working site when they work in a higher level above ground. Please refer to Working at height in New Zealand, www.worksafe.govt.nz
Why the job should be done from outside of your building/house?
Our simple answer is:due to window structure design and make, people safety, window beads and putty can be removed and repaired only from outside of your window
Scaffolding is so dear, why we have to use it?
a simple answer is: please refer to Health&Safety at Work Act 2015 and the Health and Safety in Employment Regulations 1995.www.worksafe.govt.nz, it is a risk if you fail to abide by the regulations and Work Act.
