SUPPORTING THE FIT-OUT SECTOR

WHETHER FIRST FIX OR SECOND FIX - POWERED ACCESS IS THE QUICK FIX

A Mobile Elevating Work Platform (MEWP) can provide a stable platform to work from when carrying out fit-out installations at height and are more efficient and safer to use than towers.

The ability to go up and over obstacles to reach the work area are another benefit of using a MEWP over alternatives.

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.

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.

 

RISK ASSESSMENT

 Before any 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/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
