Were you one of the 2647? Small words, big number.
More than ten accidents a week were caused by objects dropping from mobile scaffold towers. A risk reduction solution is now at hand.
Number of what? We are quoting directly from the HSE’s own statistics, which show that in the period 2005 – 2010 there were 2647 accidents involving people being hit by objects falling from mobile scaffolding towers; that’s over 500 per year or 10 per week on average.
Until now operators needed to devise their own ways of keeping tools and materials handy but this often involved balancing a plank or other item on the tower or mewp. These devices are usually insecure with unproven load-bearing capacity. They may even be a breach of site policy and thus be a contractual risk. By using Skaftray, the risk of dropped objects is reduced as tools and materials are safely contained in a purpose designed unit with the safe working load clearly displayed. The Skaftray is also securely mounted to the tower or mewp. The photograph accompanying this release shows a Skaftray in use on a small podium. The Skaftray range is available to suit single and double width scaffold towers, podiums steps and Pop Up mewps. Custom colours and sizes may be available to bulk order.
