Falling from heights is one of the most common accidents in the construction industry. Accidents can happen any time, but the consequences are serious, both personally and financially. Unnecessary says Boels Rental. Unsafe situations are easy to prevent!
Use the right equipment
The solution is simple: always use the right and best equipment appropriate to the situation. Such as rolling scaffolds or aerial work platforms. Is buying out of budget? Have a look at renting equipment. At Boels, you can hire the latest aluminium mobile scaffolds with 'Safe-Quick' system for greater stability. These mobile scaffolds are always well maintained and inspected. In need for a scaffold for a longer period or for more than one occasion? Then a fixed scaffold is the solution. And when the job requires moving the scaffold frequently to work at height, an aerial work platform, such as a scissor lift or articulated telescope, may be a better solution. For indoor use manual or battery-powered passenger lifts are the alternative. These low-level access passenger lifts are easy to move, and have no emissions. Boels offers passenger lifts up to 5.1 metres.
Prevent incorrect use with training
Make sure to always follow current safety rules and recommendations. In the Boels training "Working safely with rolling scaffolding" you learn rules and recommendations in accordance with the 'A-sheet Role scaffolding'. And in the "Working safely with aerial platforms" training you learn how to work safely with and on an aerial platform. Add these training courses to your business and minimise the risks when working at height.
