Innovative System Heightens Workplace Safety in Transportation

Oct 15, 2018

According to Safework Australia, 11 per cent of work deaths result from falls from heights with half of these cases involving falls of three metres or less*. Safework also reports the road freight transport sector has the highest rate of these incidents per 1,000 employees, and in the majority of truck-related cases, the worker fell while loading or unloading^.

The first of its kind in Australia, Bailey Ladders has released a Modular Access System product range that enables users to safely access a wide area via a platform flexible in both height and length.

The innovative system meets growing market demand for an off-the-shelf product that is affordable, flexible, easily transportable, and above all safe and reliable for workplace height access.

Having the appropriate equipment when undertaking a job, whether it involves working at heights or not, from a trustworthy manufacturer is vital to maintaining a safe work place.

The system has been specifically designed to be adaptable for industries such as transportation, making it ideal for loading and unloading trucks or vehicle maintenance.

Bailey Ladders AU NZ Managing Director, Scott Douglas, commented, “The Modular Access System is unlike anything currently on the market and is agile enough to meet the height-access demands of many workplaces.

“The ability to create a tailored structure that is as long as you like, coupled with being able work at multiple levels will be a game changer for many of our customers,” he said. 

The new modules are a flat-packed kit and are simply bolted together to obtain the desired length quickly. The system is on lockable wheels so is easily transportable, it has quick attachment handrails to ensure safety, holds up to 170kg per platform, and comes in four heights.
