When a leading car roof box manufacturer had a health and safety issue onsite, concerning the loading and unloading of vehicles at its warehouse in Suffolk, they contacted Action Handling Equipment Ltd to visit the site and advise of a solution to resolve the issues..
Previously, the client had been using an aluminium platform step, but following several minor incidents it was clear that they had to find a safer solution before any onsite personnel were injured. The solution had to comply with health & safety regulations. The experienced sales representative from Action Handling Equipment Ltd visited the site to observe the operation and recommended a safe and cost effective solution to the problem.
It was decided the access platform should be fully customised with
- Lockable castors.
- Easy access via detachable chains.
- Non-slip platform area.
A bespoke, fully-welded, mobile steel access platform was supplied and delivered within 15 days and is now on site making the loading and unloading operation much faster and easier, but most importantly, safer for the user.
