Stop the Drop

Working at height should always be performed in a safe way using the right equipment.

Working at height in an unsafe way can lead to a dangerous situation for both the worker and others who may be working close by as a fall can result in serious or fatal injuries.

Every accident can be avoided through careful planning, selection of the right equipment and working in a safe way. For further details please follow the link below:

Gas canisters  Please let the operations team know if you require any removable gas canister storage as soon as possible so this can be arranged.
