WORKING AT HEIGHT IN SCHOOLS, ACADEMIES, COLLEGES & UNIVERSITIES

A recent HSE survey found that 92% of people working in the education sector work at height at some point and In the last six years there have been five deaths and over three thousand (HSE stats last 5 years, 3 deaths over 2000 major injuries) injuries due to falling from height (source HSE)

The majority of major injuries in schools relate to ‘low level' falls below two metres. These include falls from desks and chairs while putting up displays; falls from stools while closing windows and falls from ladders while carrying out maintenance work....

As well as work at height hazards at ‘low level’, accessing  high level  services such as lighting in sports halls, main halls, atriums, lecture and drama theatres all pose dangers and challenges.

The two most popular access platforms which we supply to the education sector are our compact Genie AWP and innovative Deskglider height adjustable platform. The combination of these two access platforms  enable  safe and efficient access to the vast majority of both ‘low level’ and ‘high level ‘areas.
Lights located above fixed raked seating as commonly found in auditoriums and lecture theatres always cause access problems.  Also  how to access lights situated above stairs is a common issue. Our bespoke off-set access towers are the ideal solution to these types of work at height problems.

Owning your own access equipment will also mean that jobs which involve working at  height  that are commonly  out-sourced  to contractors can be undertaken by your own maintenance and facilities staff. This means that along with safety, access platform ownership has financial benefits also.
