Improving Safety

Falls from height remain a prime cause of deaths in the workplace and every system that improves safe working at height is to be welcomed.

Using guard rails on all open sides and wearing harnesses kept in good condition are important safety practices but probably the biggest contributor to improved safety has been the advent of work platforms to reach higher levels. These can be in the form of hydraulic access platforms such as scissor lifts and boom lifts, or non-powered structures that are assembled on site to provide quick, safe access to rooflines.

Featured Company – Easi-Dec Access Systems Ltd

Among the innovative safe working at height solutions offered by Easi-Dec are a range of versatile access platforms.

Like all the company’s equipment, the work platforms comply with all current regulations, are robust enough to take site knocks, yet are simple to use.

The platforms are used by roofing contractors, installers of guttering, fascias, solar panels and windows and maintenance contractors for the social housing sector, among others. The original Easi-Dec system, a cost effective alternative to scaffolding ideal for repair jobs, has been expanded into products to meet the specific needs of various applications.PlatformBridge.jpg

Easi-Dec comprises a 2m long platform on aluminium telescopic legs. Comprising just eight lightweight components, it is easily transported by van and quickly assembled on site, without tools. The system provides a fully certified, stable work platform that enables safe access to roof line level while spanning obstructions such as bay windows. Its legs can be individually adjusted for uneven ground. For a single worker, the smaller Mono-Dec is an ideal product for reaching soffits or higher level brickwork.
