Posted on Dec 1 2015 - 4:42pm by Editorial Staff

Any company boss who asks their staff to work at height will need to invest in the right equipment. You don’t need us to tell you about the possible dangers they might face. At the end of the day, falling foul of health and safety laws could land you in trouble. For that reason, you’ll also have to make sure everyone has the right training. Here is just some of the essential technology you might require.


PAV stands for push around vehicle. Theses are used most frequently in warehouses, factories, and other places with stable surfaces. They are great tools for reaching items on high shelves or working off the ground.

Boom lift

Boom lifts are perfect for working at height one uneven surfaces. Most of them come with tracks instead of wheels. That is because they offer more stability. Workers can access hard to reach areas with ease, allowing them to perform their jobs safely.

Scissor lift

At some point, your workers might need to reach exceptionally high locations. For that, they’re going to need something well designed that is not going to topple over. A scissor lift is perfect. The weights in the bottom of the device make it very difficult for anyone to tip it over, even with extreme force.

Just make sure that all workers are given proper training before using the machinery of that nature. One simple mistake could place lives at risk, and the last thing any boss needs is a personal injury claim. Train your workers effectively, and these tools could make their working day much easier.
