We take Health & Safety seriously and expect you to! We don’t want damaged customers.
Health & Safety
HighLife is dedicated to providing our customers with a prompt, reliable and safe service.
Our equipment undergoes stringent safety tests prior to being used.
If a fault is detected during the inspection process the machine is removed from circulation and quarantined until a full inspection takes place to locate any potential faults, any faults found to be present are rectified then the machine undergoes another full inspection prior to being released back into the operational hire fleet. Every single piece of equipment we operate in our hire fleet undergoes a routine maintenance schedule also which conforms to the manufacturers recommendations.
Further to the pre delivery inspection process every item in our hire fleet also undergoes a full 6 monthly thorough examination, as set out in the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations (LOLER) 1998.
All of our field engineers are able to attend site and carry out 6 monthly mandatory inspections of the equipment you have on hire so as to reduce any possible downtime, the engineers are all supplied with full PPE kits, risk assessment manuals and method statements, so that they are able to provide you with any documentation you may require to enable them to carry out the inspections whilst on your site safely and effectively.
Why Train your staff?
The IPAF training programme for platform operators was developed by leading industry professionals.
Each successful trainee is issued with a PAL Card (Powered Access Licence), a safety guide, a log book and a certificate, so that they can prove to their employers that they are competent in the safe use of Mobile Elevated Work Platforms as and when requested.
Use a harness!
Being safe on a picker is a no brainer.
We tend do most of the work ourselves, however if you are going up in the basket. depending on what you are doing when involved in lifting equipment you will probably be asked to strap into a harness. It is important to us you are safe.
