Issue 4: Safety Provision for PV Panel Access

With the increasing number of Photovoltaic arrays (PV) being installed on buildings of all shapes, sizes and uses it is becoming increasingly obvious that in many cases there is little, or no concern given to the workers who are required to access the panels for maintenance purposes.

This can be down to a lack of knowledge on the part of the designer, but also, more worryingly, can be down to a trade off between output from the PV and the cost of the safety system to be installed.
