Working at height comes with major risks. No one really understands the risk involved until they lose a staff member, have to suffer downtime due to injuries, or have to pay out large sums of money for IOD expenses/claims. When choosing between the various ladders available on the market, you will undoubtedly encounter the aluminium ladderstage, which we personally think is a fantastic choice. These units are designed to provide the ultimate safety by providing a walkway with guardrails, so that workers can cross an area of 2 m while working at heights. Brake-lock casters ensure that the unit is stable and secure.
Safe and well-maintained ladders are required by health and safety regulations in the workplace. If your staff have to work at height (and that’s any height above ground height), you need to ensure that they are provided with access to the right equipment and safety mechanisms, in order to do so without being at risk. When shopping around for ladders, it can be hard to choose between wood, fibreglass, and aluminium ladders. They all have their pros and cons, but the way to ensure that you get the right ladder for the job is to check the ladder specifications and consider what each unit has actually been designed to support.
By chatting with your local trusted ladder supplier, you can gather some useful and pertinent information regarding ladder safety and regulations in the workplace. Labour law in South Africa outlines the need for ladders in various situations, and how these ladders are to be used safely, and maintained on an ongoing basis.
Most people who don’t work on production lines or in material handling environments only encounter gravity roller conveyor systems at the airport security checkpoints, where hand luggage is checked, and passengers transfer to the departure gates. Without these roller conveyors, security checkpoints at the airport would be much slower. With the introduction of these systems to airports, the process is speedy and efficient. And that’s basically what conveyor systems do for all industries that they are used in. They speed things up and aid in efficiency.
It’s interesting to note that aluminium is one of the most common chemical elements on earth. In fact, it’s only third to oxygen and silicon. After steel, it is actually the most used metal, and that it in itself is very telling about the material, and just how beneficial and versatile it is. The material is used to manufacture various tools and equipment. This is because the various standard processing methods can be applied to the material (such as forming and welding), which means that it’s easier to work with than other types of metals. Read More
The history of the pallet truck dates back to 1887, where the first of its kind was designed to merely lift pallets a short distance off the ground while it remained stationary. They simply do not compare to the pallet trucks of today, which can do so much more. In modern times, pallet trucks are far more versatile, which is why they are a vital item of equipment in the material moving and handling industry. With the right pallet truck, workers can move both big and small items from one area to another with relative ease. The trucks can also be used to stack goods on top of each other. When working with big or heavy objects, these trucks can provide a great deal of convenience to the workplace.
Even though there are new ladders on the market with hinges and folding sections that allow a multitude of configurations, extension ladders remain popular and sought-after items in many industries.

When shopping around, you will find that extension ladders are typically manufactured from wood, fibreglass, or aluminium. While wooden ladders have their merit, and were the choice of years gone by, it is aluminium and fibreglass ladders that have stolen the limelight.
