POWERED ACCESS PLATFORMS = MINIMAL DISRUPTION TO PRODUCTION WORKFLOW

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.

A MEWP (Mobile Elevated Work Platform) can provide a simple, safe and efficient way to carry out tasks within a manufaturing environment with minimal disruption to the production workflow. MEWPS are quick to deploy and quick to remove once the job is complete. Compact electric articulated booms allow access in confined working areas and alow up an over access to areas that would otherwise be inaccesible without removing machinery or equipment.

It is important to ensure that prior to the commencement of any work that a risk assesment is carried out and that the work is suitably and sufficiently planned and managed, a site survey/assessment will need to be undertaken before work starts. 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 aerial tree work operations 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 i.e. unrestricted access to the tree’s crown as required for the task
  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
