Many millions of workers are required to work at height in their day-to-day jobs. Whilst there is a huge variety of workers, and types of work, what they all ultimately want is a safe and stable platform to work on to get the job done.

Working at height is inherently dangerous but is unfortunately a necessary evil in so many industries. Where possible, the astute Operator avoids it by arranging the work to be done at ground level. If this can’t be done, they minimize Height Work as much as possible. However, even if it has been minimized, any work at height still carries risk. That’s when the Operators choice of equipment is so important and directly impacts the effectiveness of his strategy to minimize the risk.

With every choice, the Operator also has to weigh up the efficiency of his solution, and the cost. The right safety equipment should both reduce the risk of injury and increase productivity. Traditionally, ladders and scaffolding have been the go-to method, providing relatively cheap and readily available height access. However, these methods can be very dangerous and costly if not used properly, and therefore require a lot of training, overseeing and management. One slip up, or shortcut taken can spell disaster.

Adjustable Height Platforms (AHP) are a relatively new method available to the market. They remove a great deal of the risks presented by traditional Scaffold and Ladders, provide very stable and solid work decks, and also some flexibility through their ability to provide various height deck options from the single piece work platform Unit.
