Access Equipment

Here at Workplace we have a range of access equipment for working at height safely and securely.

ACCESS EQUIPMENT SAFETY

Safety is the most important factor when it comes to using access equipment for working at height. Investing in high quality access equipment is an excellent way to adhere to working at height regulations, keeping yourself and your employees safe. There are countless dangerous scenarios that can be avoided if the right access equipment is used. Working at height is dangerous if a person is not properly trained or is using inappropriate equipment for their particular job.

For the safest working conditions, it is paramount that the correct height is established for the task at hand. Working on a ladder or platform that is too short or tall is hazardous and both of these scenarios will lead to overreaching. This makes it far more likely that you may lose your balance or tip over the equipment you are standing on.

  • You must select the right Access Equipment for the job, ensuring that you are not overreaching in any direction.
  • Make sure that the person using the equipment is trained to set it up and use it appropriately.
  • Check your equipment before each use to ensure it is not damaged. Damaged equipment is unsafe and not fit for use.

BRITISH SAFETY STANDARDS

The best quality ladders, steps and platforms are built and tested to strict standards. This ensures that they consistently perform to the necessary levels.  Across our range the British Standards Institute (BSI) safety standards are indicated by their name or in the product information.

Some of the standards you are likely to see include BS 2037 Class 1 and BS EN131 safety standards. These indicate that the product is ideal for use in the workplace. The Class 1 rating identifies ladders suited to heavy duty work, made for regular use where transportation and storage will occur. The EN131 classification is given to medium duty ladders which are used in good conditions less frequently, which may also be transported and stored regularly.

Pay close attention to these standards to ensure that you’re getting the most appropriate equipment for your workplace.

TYPES OF ACCESS EQUIPMENT
