Work safer

A new way to work at height safely

Working at heights safely is an increasing concern for companies that care about the well-being of their employees. According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE, Nov. 2021), one of the common causes of fatalities and major injuries while working at height are falls from ladders and through fragile surfaces. For example, at the Food and Drink industry, “falls from height are the third highest cause of fatal injury, comprising 20% of fatal accidents” and, falling from ladders represent the 40% of them (HSE, Nov. 2021).

For this reason, Power Towers is changing how the world works at height up to 5.5m by offering a modern alternative to ladders, scaffolding or podium steps.

All Power Towers’ safety platforms are fully guarded using handrail protection to keep the operator fully enclose while working. As soon as the operator elevates the safety platform, the wheels lock automatically keeping the machine in a horizontally fixed position. The operator has both feet at the same level and both hands free for working at height safely.

The safety platforms allow the operator to work in a full 360-degree radius without stretching or having to balance, avoiding near misses and falls. This facilitates a safer job site and more motivated operator that helps your company to continuously improve its goal of more sustainable working conditions.

A safe and sustainable workplace not only protects workers from injury and illness, but also reduces costs associated with absenteeism and turnover. Additional benefits by working at height safely result in improved productivity, quality and employee morale. At Power Towers we can show you how safety is good for business.
