Safety when working at height

SEPTEMBER 11, 2019

 

 

 

The Easy Access team are often visiting our trade customers onsite to assess the worksite and identify the most appropriate scaffold or edge protection solution for the job.  Easy Access will also give advice about using the equipment in a manner that maintains compliance to the Working at Height legislation.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Easy Access’s video presentation for the roadshow will be presented by Resident Builder, Peter Wolfkamp LBP, NZTC.  Peter will provide builders attending with clarity around New Zealand’s height access regulations as It relates to practical on-the-job situations.  The popular Site Foreman on The Block NZ will also advise on some of the industry-driven site-specific regulations recently being enforced by the larger construction companies, that contractors should be aware of when moving from site to site. 

The training video will feature some of the newest Easy Access products available from Mitre 10, including the NZ-made MOBI scaffold tower.  Lightweight and easy to install with colour-coded snaplock connections, the end frames have 300mm centered full width serrated rungs, so can be safely and compliantly accessed without the use of a separate clip-on ladder.  

While the MOBI is available in both single (0.8m) and double (1.4m) widths, Easy access have kept the length at 2m, making the mobile tower easier to store and transport, and thereby even more convenient to use.  At a load rating of 450Kg this is the strongest, most robust scaffold tower available in New Zealand.

Also featured will be the new AdjustaStep, which, since its introduction to the building trades a year ago, has been a hit with tradies.  The original AdjustaStep increases the versatility of the popular and site-safe-friendly platform ladder by allowing users to adjust the large working platform through a range of 4 convenient heights.

The AdjustaStep is now also available in a 3 – 5 Step and a 5-9 step height.  With a 200Kg load rating this is the toughest and most versatile ladder in New Zealand.  Look out for the BSM show specials on the 3 – 5 Step AdjustaStep only available from Mitre 10.

The team from Easy Access look forward to seeing our trade customers at the BSM seminars throughout New Zealand during September-November.  Go to bsm.org.nz to find out when your local BSM seminar is on and to RSVP.
