Food Processing & Hugo Lift - A Recipe For Success

Frank Roberts is a family owned bakery based in Cheshire, that prides itself on producing over 3.5 million loaves of high-quality bread, bread rolls and teacakes every week.


The Challenge

Frank Roberts Bakery came to HLS to help find the right solution to start reducing the frequency of employees working on ladders across their multiple manufacturing sites. Their key objectives were to improve safety and be more efficient by reducing the resources used when working with ladders.

Finding the right work at height solution

Many food and drink manufacturers are responsible for working at height on an almost daily basis – inspecting equipment, clearing blockages, high-level cleaning and so on. However, the pressure to maintain speed of production sometimes means this work is carried out in an unsafe and non-compliant way – mostly with ladders and stepladders, which cause some 40% of working at height accidents in the industry.

Having worked with some of the world’s biggest food and drink brands, HLS has a proven track record in solving food manufacturers’ unique compliance and safety challenges. Whether you need a specific MEWP, a bespoke solution or a consultancy service, we can help you comply with regulations, avoid accidents and near-misses, and maximise your site’s productivity.
