Examples of Poor design are quite common and result in many situations presenting unnecessary difficulties for Maintenance. Often just more thought and a little common sense are all that is required. An example of poor design is shown below.
Flat Roof Design
A Latchway System running beneath Plant on a flat roof with no edge protection, an installation without considering those who need to maintain the equipment.
The above is on a Flat roof with no parapet wall. The Latchway System should go round the Plant and equipment to aid safe access and easy maintenance.
