You may not be aware, but you could be breaking health and safety rules on a daily basis. Health and Safety compliance is a necessity when engaging in work-at-height tasks and using a cherry picker or scissor lift plays a huge part in keeping people safe. Ignoring these rules can result in severe penalties, lawsuits, and even imprisonment and can lead to tragedy.
Finding the right powered access platform provider can be a challenge, as there is a whole host of scissor lifts and cherry pickers to hire and buy. But working with a MEWP provider who understands your industry and is 100% committed to help you hit your goals makes all the difference. At Horizon Platforms, we focus on consistency, safety and reliability to make your hiring process straightforward.
Being able to hire powered access platforms is crucial for many businesses across a wide range of industries, providing safe and efficient work-at-height solutions for fittings, maintenance and more.
As a business operating within the warehousing and distribution industry, you’ll be required to work at height on a daily basis. With many employees required to work above ground level so regularly, it’s important that they remain safe whilst doing so. Through the use of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs), you can ensure workers on-site are able to work at height safely and efficiently, allowing both storage and distribution tasks to be carried out.
With the supermarket retail industry worth over £190bn and an estimated estate of over 12,704 stores, keeping them in good working condition and managing layout changes is a stressful business. Timescales are tight and jobs are often carried out at night by teams of contractors across the UK. This makes managing it complex and requires a high degree of trust an efficiency in the teams and suppliers involved to deliver work on time. In amongst the project management challenges, health and safety regulations need to be met continuously.
