British Waterways - Safety Treads & Decking

03 July 2012

“Keep a steady foothold with Action Handling” All our safety treads & decking equipment is designed to comply with Health & Safety regulations

Safety of personnel in environments where there are slippery surfaces is absolutely vital.  When a sub-contractor of British Waterways noticed an increase in injuries and sick-leave at one particular site, they decided to investigate.  The conclusion of this was that a large number of the workforce had slipped on unsecure flooring and something had to be done immediately to ensure that Health & Safety regulations were being adhered to.

The sub-contractor’s first port of call was Action Handling, to arrange a meeting and discuss any improvements that could be made.  A large quantity of safety tread & decking equipment was supplied and installed within 3 working days.  An overview of the kit that we supplied is detailed below;
