Loading platform barriers
We worked with the team at Preston Hire to install barriers on the SuperDeck loading platforms at one of our Auckland projects.
Following a near miss, our team worked hard with Preston Hire to develop and implement this new engineering control. The barriers add extra height to the sides of the loading platforms, keeping everyone safer by reducing the risk of falling objects.
The initiative has been so successful that barriers now form part of the mandatory controls we use when hiring SuperDecks.
This is the first time these barriers have been used on SuperDecks in New Zealand, but we’d recommend them to everyone!
