Finally decided to confront that long overdue DIY project your wife has been nagging about? While the December holidays are a great time to relax and unwind, it is also a brilliant time to get to all those small jobs around the house that you have not been able to do. Let us face it, no one really wants to spend their evenings or their precious weekends doing maintenance work around the house when they could be relaxing on the couch. From putting up pictures, painting the walls, repairing the ceiling, and cleaning gutters to pruning trees, there is no better time to get things done than the year-end holidays. But first and foremost, if you want to complete all those jobs safely and efficiently, you’re going to need the right ladder.
Are you about to embark on a job that requires the use of scaffolding? While it is estimated that about 65% of all construction jobs require the use of scaffolding, it should come as no surprise to learn that the improper use of scaffolding can lead to serious injury or even death. Yes, thousands of builders are injured every year as a result of scaffolding failures, and if you don’t follow the necessary steps to keep yourself and your employees safe from harm’s way, you could be slapped with a hefty fine of up to R50 000, or even worse, spend up to a year in jail. With that said, here are three scaffolding safety tips every business or homeowner should know:
Are you planning to set up a new locker room or simply looking to refit your existing one? Are you not sure where to start? At Caslad, we understand that fitting a room with lockers can be a sizable investment for any organisation, especially in today’s tough economy. Whether you are a school, business, warehouse, gym, or sports club, here are three useful factors to take into account before making your purchasing decision:
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.
