POWERED ACCESS FOR FILM, TELEVISION, MEDIA AND ENTERTAINMENT

WE PROVIDE A STABLE PLATFORM WHETHER YOU ARE FILMING, LIGHTING OR CREATING THE PERFECT BACKDROP

Working at height is often something that can not be avoided when working within the entertainment sector. However, it is possible to minimise potential risks by ensuring that you have the correct level of training and access equipment.

The safest way is the use of Mobile Elevated Work Platforms (MEWPs) such as scissor, boom and vehicle-mounted platforms which can help to prevent a fall from occurring when working at height.

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 at height installations commence, 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/unrestricted
  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
