Hire company A-Plant has taken the need for safety seriously, and has introduced a site safety pack, to be given away with its plant.
The pack is part of the company’s “Setting the Safety Standard” push, designed to raise health and safety standards in the construction industry.
It comprises folders, posters, window stickers, hand arm vibration and dust supplements and an extensive 60-page health and safety handbook. The company wants to extend the impact of its original site safety pack introduced in 2006.
A-Plant’s environment, health and safety and performance standards director is Douglas McLuckie.
He says: “We recognise the significance of providing detailed health and safety information to our customers, but also acknowledge the importance of ensuring our employees are kept informed, which we have done through various other initiatives, including the production of basic pocket guides to health and safety.”
Taking this philosophy a step further, A-Plant observed that one way to make plant safer is to reduce the number of operatives required and has developed a self-erecting access platform.
The Razordeck can be erected to three working heights – 550mm, 1m and 2m.
One person can operate the structure, which unfolds to the required height, contains no removable parts, and needs no assembly.
