When it comes to working at height, safety should always be the top priority. Navigating obstacles like pipework, plant equipment, and changes in roof levels can pose significant risks to workers. That’s where modular access platforms, such as step-over kits, come in – these safe access platforms provide a secure, anti-slip walking surface to help employees traverse potentially hazardous areas with ease. In this blog post, we’ll explore how Fisher Alvin’s range of step-over kits can transform your workplace.

The Importance of Modular Access Platforms

Modular access platforms, such as step-over kits, offer a flexible and adaptable safety solution for safe access in the workplace. These platforms can be easily configured to suit various obstacles and changes in levels, ensuring that workers can navigate their environment without putting themselves at risk. By investing in modular access platforms, businesses demonstrate a commitment to employee safety and well-being, while ensuring complete compliance with EU safety standards. These platforms are particularly useful in industrial environments, such as warehouses and factories, where obstacles like cable trays, pipework, and warehouse shelves are common.
