Research shows many large organisations can save substantial occupational ill health and injury costs by employing alternative approaches to tasks that involve reaching higher than 5ft. Financial Directors are often left to assess the risk and count the cost of customer and employee injury liabilities including corporate manslaughter exposure.  The good news is that it is possible to minimize this and even save money through increased productivity.

Here at HLS we are pleased to find that many companies are now focusing on activities at lower heights and are exploring new methods and solutions to prevent such falls and consequential costs.

We are successfully consulting across all sectors to support small, medium and large companies in finding the right solutions for their tasks that would otherwise be done using steps, ladders or towers.
