“Action Handling guarantee safety & security with their Lifting Equipment”

All our Lifters are designed to comply with Health & Safety standard regulations

During a large-scale refurbishment project at London’s Heathrow Airport, workmen onsite were experiencing a difficulty in lifting/transporting materials.  Action Handling was engaged to liaise directly with the project Director and the building contractors who were carrying out the work.  Following a detailed design process, the aim was to supply a solution which would be lightweight, user-friendly, multi-functional and above all; safe.

Whilst complying with all standard Health & Safety regulations, the product development team at Action Handling set about designing a Materials Lifter which would have numerous optional accessories.
