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.

See what they had to say about us

HLS recommended the HUGO Lift which was a good fit for us. We have since introduced 3 Hugo Lifts around the business, which are proving to be a success. It’s safer, obviously with the beam edge protection all around the stand. It has made our access to some areas easier, so all in all more efficient. We have also found it very simple to use, light-weight, easily manoeuvrable. It has been a pleasure working with HLS in assessing our work at height requirements. Rachel and the team were very professional in their approach. They are a great company to work with and had a really positive approach from start to finish. So much so, that they are due back on site next week to present some other products they have which may reduce our working at height risks around the business.

The staff buy-in has been amazing! We love Hugo, it’s easy to use and way safer than a ladder. The bespoke cantilever ladder has allowed us to greatly improve safety for specific tasks on automation. There’s been a lot of change. The project has made us safer and more efficient there has been a large improvement in staff morale and engagement. It was great working with HLS they have helped us to provide an excellent and cost-effective solution to improve safety around working at height.
