When it comes to hiring an access platform, it’s important to make sure that the workers who are planning to operate the machinery have the correct licences. Not only is this a legal requirement, but it also ensures that the operators have the correct knowledge of how to use the machinery.
At Horizon Platforms, we aim to provide as much support with the process as possible, which includes offering IPAF training at our Wakefield depot. The various training courses available can be taken by the candidate in order to achieve the necessary licences, whether it’s for an operator, instructor or manager
There are a variety of access platforms which are suitable for industrial and manufacturing applications, due to their versatility. With a choice of scissor lifts, boom lifts and other access platforms which offer diverse manoeuvrability, it’s important to choose one which is tailored to your specification.
With so many different functionalities available, it’s important to carry out an assessment of your working environment to determine which features are going to work best for you. This ensures you can find a MEWP which allows you to carry out your industrial and manufacturing work in the most efficient way.
Some MEWPs, whilst offering great manoeuvrability, may not be suitable for certain industrial and manufacturing environments. For tasks which need to be completed in a restricted space, a smaller MEWP with vertical manoeuvrability may be more suitable than one with an extending boom, which would otherwise require a large space.
We ensure that safety is a top priority here at Horizon Platforms, and so have made sure we have strict policies and procedures in place which allow us to achieve the standards outlined for ISO 45001 accreditation.
Regular audits of our operations are carried out to ensure that we are continually meeting the policies laid out by ourselves and carrying out the correct procedures that allow us to meet all relevant safety regulations. Having these in place allows us to uphold our exceptional safety record and reduce the risks that our customers and staff may face.
