What You Need to Consider When Choosing Access Platform Equipment For Racking Installations

The most important factor to consider before choosing your MEWP is whether the operator in charge of using the machinery has the correct licence. It’s a legal requirement that the operator has obtained the correct licence as a result of an official IPAF training course, before getting behind the controls of an access platform. 

If you’re unsure exactly which training courses relate to which licences and the criteria needed to achieve these qualifications, explore our training page, where we have all the information you need to know on which IPAF training course would be suitable for you.

Benefits From Improved Safety & Efficiency With The Right MEWP For Racking Installations

Access platforms are designed not only to make it easier to complete work at height but also to make it safer too, however, when completing racking installation work, there may be strict site regulations you’ll need to adhere to. For example, warehouses and sites have different regulations on aspects such as non-marking MEWP tyres and the training which is required by all operators.

Whether you require additional safety equipment to aid with the operation of the MEWPs in these demanding environments, such as harnesses, or other equipment which aids with the task at hand, we can help with that too. Explore our website to discover the different offerings we have available to aid with the completion of your racking installation project.

The Importance Of Safety Whilst Working At Height

At Horizon Platforms, safety is the number one priority and to ensure that we are able to achieve the high standards set by the ISO 45001 accreditation, we’ve worked hard to put policies and procedures in place that allows us to obtain this.

One of the ways that we ensure we continually meet the high standards outlined by safety regulations is through auditing, which involves a full inspection of our policies and procedures, making sure that they are all carried out as required. This is important to us as a business, as it helps us to maintain an excellent safety record and whilst also reducing any risks that both our customers and staff may face.
