4 Access Hire Helps Protect Death at Work in the UK
Falling from a height remains the leading cause of death for workers in the United Kingdom. 4 Access Hire strives to prevent it by providing training and equipment to keep employees safe.
4 Access Hire is one of the approved PASMA training centers in the UK. Training of the Prefabricated and Manufacturing Access Supplier Association is an industry standard in minimizing accident and injury risks to operations working on cellular scaffolding towers. PASMA training teaches workers to understand the risks so they know how to work safer in a very high place.
The PASMA training includes the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations and the prevailing high regulations in the UK. It also teaches workers how to use towers safely, check for damage and follow manufacturer’s guidelines.
PASMA photo cards showing a worker has received PASMA training received on sites throughout the UK and approved by UK Contractors Group. It must be renewed every five years.
The Health and Safety Executive reported that more than a quarter of all fatal workplace injuries in Britain over the past year, 37 from 144, were caused by a decrease from altitude. The majority of fatal declines, 18 out of 37, occurred in the construction sector.
Along with training, 4 Access Hire offers quality equipment including mobile aluminum scaffolding towers, podium steps and light staging. Its mobile scaffold tower is designed to be easy to carry, assemble and store, providing an ideal and safe working platform for use in homes, buildings or gardens.
The company supplies the Clickstak chimney scaffolding system, which is considered an alternative to traditional tubes and fitting scaffolding.
