A recipe for working at height for food manufacturers


Food manufacturers face a range of risks, one of these is working at height. Read on for more information on how HLS could help you! 

Most manufacturers face challenges when working at height, mainly accessing production machinery for maintenance or blockage clearance, or for general building maintenance. In factories working at height is a necessary and unavoidable part of the running of a factory. One of the biggest concerns incudes working around awkward and large machinery. Often these spaces can be confined, increasing the risk of accidents or injury. By using access platforms manufacturers can gain entry to those spaces easily and safely. thereofre ultimately increasing worker productivity.




We have seen many food and drink manufacturers benefit from using safer working at height solutions. Marc Young from Wrigley’s said:

‘We were looking to move away from ladders and steps in our factories, and were looking to eliminate any unsafe equipment. We contacted HLS after meeting them at the safety and health 2014 tradeshow, when we found Hugo. We felt Hugo would be perfect for our site and believe HLS helped meet our working at height needs’
