The Power in Access

The power in access


A powered access platform is the perfect solution for high level cleaning jobs

High-level commercial cleaning can be a very dangerous job if not undertaken by trained professionals using specialist equipment.

Whether in a hospital, care home, school, gym, office or factory, there are many reasons why high-level cleaning is important; health and safety, hygiene, renovation or conservation to prolong the fabric of a building and prevent mould, damp and dirt/dust build-up.

The use of mobile elevated work platforms (MEWPs), such as scissor lifts or static and mobile booms, can help to prevent a fall from occurring when undertaking high-level commercial cleaning.

A powered access platform is one of the safest means for temporary work at height, provided that a risk assessment is done, managers and operators are properly trained and safe use procedures are followed.

GTAccess can help with specifying the correct access platform for the task, and we offer free site surveys that will carefully consider site layout, access, egress, land use and terrain.



Risk assessment

Before any cleaning work at height commences, it is important to assess the following:


  1. Is there adequate space available for the operation and/or machinery?
  2. Are the ground conditions and topography suitable/stable?
  3. Is there adequate safe working distances from overhead services?
  4. Is the site access available or restricted?
  5. Are the wind speed, exposure and weather conditions suitable for use?
  6. Are the operatives adequately trained and proficient to undertake the tasks required?
