Working at Heights Safely and Securely

Countless accidents occur over the holiday season due to falls when working at heights. we are not simply referring to standard situations that might occur during a construction project. Other issues can include placing large Christmas trees in the centre of a town, equipping street light poles with festive ornaments and safely decorating the exterior of one’s home. In all of these scenarios, the use of platform lifts and similar types of powered access platforms such as this Niftylift HR21D (Working height 20.8m) represent ideal solutions.

Commercial Requirements During the Christmas Season

Many companies which to show off their festive side by decorating their property with lights and similar ornaments. Whether referring to the exterior of a building or placing a large tree within an entrance foyer, the fact of the matter is that these tasks can be dangerous (particularly for those who might not have a great deal of experience with working at heights). Powered access platforms such as the Skyjack SJ111 offered by Smiths Hire are capable of taking the guesswork out of the equation. Designed for both indoor and outdoor use, there is no doubt that you will be able to find the most suitable configuration in no time at all.

Saving Time While Ensuring Safety

Some holiday displays can be extremely challenging to complete; especially when referring to large municipal tasks such as stringing up thousands of lights. Not only is this a very time-consuming project, but utilising standard equipment such as extension ladders will pose a very real risk in terms of safety. The access platforms provided by our team offer a versatile and user-friendly edge. Whether employing the Hinowa 15.70 work platform to deal with narrow dimensions or the Skyjack rough terrain scissor lift for negotiating uneven terrain, there is no doubt that Smiths Hire will be able to address your needs. This is also why it is a good idea to examine these and other variants in greater detail.

Dealing with Inclement Weather Conditions

There is no doubt that the winter months are associated with challenging weather conditions. While the concept of a white Christmas is certainly appealing, we must also recognise the dangers associated with rain, ice, snow, and poor visibility. The powered access platforms provided by Smiths Hire offer a stable working area so that employees can avert many of the dangers attributed to deteriorating weather conditions. This is much more realistic than attempting to string lights up during a snow squall through the use of an a-frame ladder.

While the advantages offered by Smiths Hire can be enjoyed throughout the year, these platform lifts are even more useful during the holiday season.
