Working Platforms...

After several catastrophic and fatal accidents particularly with piling plant in recent years due to inadequately constructed and maintained working platforms, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has worked closely with the Federation of Piling Specialists (FPS) and fully supports the principle of reducing accidents by the use of properly designed, prepared and maintained working platforms.

We are ideally positioned to design and supervise the construction of working platforms having been initially involved in early consultation on the BRE guide (BRE 470), we have experience of working platform design on many projects. We would be pleased to advise Principal Contractors on their obligations under this initiative, which in the longer term must serve to reduce the number of fatalities and the associated costs that such an incident can involve.
