The Power in Access

The perfect solution to working at height within the construction sector

Within the construction industry, there are many times when working at height is required. 

Prior to the introduction of mobile elevated work platforms (MEWPs) in the 1970s, the construction industry relied almost exclusively on ladders and scaffolding to access major work-at-height projects. But now MEWPs have become increasingly common thanks to their advantages of improved job site safety, access and productivity. A MEWP can provide a stable platform to work from for a wide range of construction site tasks. 

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.



Powered access platforms are important and useful pieces of equipment for providing demolition personnel with easy access to elevated and hard-to-reach areas.



"The equipment from GTAccess has allowed us to carry out many maintenance repairs without the need for otherwise expensive scaffolding.  The equipment is always in great condition and delivered to site with professionalism. "


Steve Bruce, Facilities Manager

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?
