Short post highlighting the potential costs of poor selection of equipment for working at height, especially for the often under-considered lower level work.
There are so many ways an accident from even a small height off the ground can hurt both the person who fell and their employer - such as physical pain, absence from work, damaged reputation, insurance claims, management time etc.
Here at HLS we are pleased to find that many companies are now focusing on activities performed at lower levels of height, and are exploring new methods and solutions to prevent such accidents and the resulting costs.
We are successfully consulting across all sectors to support small, medium and large companies to find the right solutions for their tasks that would otherwise be done using steps, safety steps, ladders, towers, or podiums.
If you think we could help you to de-risk your activities or look at how your employees might work more efficiently when using equipment such as ladders and safety steps then please give one of our team a call on 0113 287 8446.
