A range of Fall Prevention and Maintenance Platforms
THE LOAD ANGEL RANGE OF FALL PREVENTION AND MAINTENANCE PLATFORMS offer solutions when working at height eg. during the loading and un loading of vehicles, securing loads, lashing loads, sheeting loads, as a mobile work platform or to use in conjunction with flat bed trailers, curtain side trailers or any other type of trailer/artic. Also these loading platforms offer a fall protection solution and refuge whilst performing maintenance tasks on vehicles or heavy plant.
According to figures published by the HSE ( In their ‘Falls from Vehicles Campaign’), 60 people working in haulage and distribution were killed last year and another 23,000 suffered injury severe enough to keep them off work for three or more days. The HSE says the deaths were caused by four kinds of accident – most often during loading, unloading and maintenance work. These include falls from vehicles with most causing injury being from a height of only two metres or less. Falls in the road haulage industry caused 299 major injuries in the 2006/07 work year including one fatality. Over two thirds of these falls were from vehicles.
