Domestic and trade podium steps hire from £30.80 per week

Efficiency and quality drops when work is carried out in either a full stretch or cramped position. Work rate can be increased on site simply by providing your team with the right height podium steps. The Working at height regulations state that a platform should "allow the person to adopt the correct work position or posture for the work in hand"

Here at Lakeside-Hire, we have a good range of low level podiums from 2.4m- 4.5m working heights.

  • 2.4m - 4.5m working heights
  • No tools needed for set up
  • Fully cleaned and safety inspected stock
  • Discount hire rates
  • Available next day delivery, London and nationwide

Far fewer sets of wobbly step ladders have been seen on site since the Working at Height Regulations (WAHR) drew our attention to the dangers of working at any height. In recent years more and more sub-contractors are hiring podium steps in the UK, turning away from ladders to stay ahead of the game.

Podium steps are far better than stepladders: they offer trouble-free and secure access to ceilings and walls, and reduce the odds of falling from just a metre. Tiny though they sound, falls from under a metre accounted for 69 deaths just before the WAHR were introduced in 2004 – that’s some food for thought, eh?

The Working at Height regulations of 2005 recommend working from platforms that “allow the person to adopt the correct work position or posture for the work in hand”, which is exactly what podium steps hire offer. Stepladders bully workers to over-stretch, twist or hunch over to get the job done, whereas hired podium steps are safer and provide a much better working environment, allowing the contractor to move naturally.

Podium hire is better in terms of safety, but also give you the competitive edge. A comfortable contractor will finish the job in much less time and are likely to do it better. The incorporated guardrail means that a stumble remains just that – a stumble – not a trip to the hospital and six weeks in plaster and out of pocket.

In the last couple of years, many site contractors expect subcontractors to hire podium steps and not turn up with stepladders. This makes sites safer and, of course, encourages a more professional approach to work. Hiring podium steps instead of buying them is a lot more easy and affordable.

So what exactly are podium steps? Some podium steps for sale on the market resemble the stepladder and come as a one-piece item, which can fold, making it easier to carry. They are the same height as a regular set of steps, but, to provide a solid base, they are wider.

The steps stand on the wide, wheeled base. The wheels lock solidly into place to provide stability and confidence at any height. Some podium steps for hire offer a non-slip platform that is adjustable, so you can access four different working levels. With a guardrail and gate protecting you from any falls: something a mate of mine could have done with in the States last year when he fell from the top of a stepladder and broke both wrists. Lesson learnt!

Ready to use in less than 15 seconds, so there is very little time between setting up and starting a comfortable day’s work.

With lockable wheels on the base and narrow enough to fit through a standard door the podium steps enable you to easily access all of your work without having to shunt and carry tools and materials between areas of work, simply push the whole hired platform to the next section and carry on work.
