Working at height is one of the most common ways of working when you’re on-site, and, as such, you’re going to want to ensure that both the equipment you use is right for the task at hand, as well as being certified as safe to use.
Access platforms, for example, are a relatively quick and simple solution to when you need to get to harder to reach areas. These access platforms are not only usable in a variety of locations around site, but also provide a stable space in which to work, allowing such work to be carried out in a wide berth.
Of course, because working at height can potentially be very dangerous, you have to ensure that any platform steps you use are up to the task. This is especially true with the increasing pressure being put on site managers to adhere to ever stricter health and safety guidelines.
As such, we employ a rigorous regime of inspecting, maintaining, and cleaning of all of the equipment that we hire. This maintenance is used to keep everything to the standard of the Health and Safety Executive, which means you can sleep easy, knowing that your workers are safe when performing tasks.
Of course, access platform hire also has a variety of advantages over a standard retail purchase of equipment. For example, these platforms are ideal whilst you’re working, but once you need to move onto the next part of the task, it’s not ideal to leave them around the site, and it’s not cost effective to find somewhere for long-term storage. However, with a hire service, we can collect the equipment as soon as you’re ready to move on, thus allowing you to focus on the task at hand.
So, if you need help getting to those harder to reach areas, contact us at Lakeside-Hire, and we’ll get you on the way to a top notch hire.
