Forklift’s firm’s platform provides safety peace of mind

A Mid Wales-based forklift truck attachment specialist has demonstrated its ongoing commitment to client safety by supplying a local logistics firm with its innovative safety platforms.

Forklift-PlatformsContact Attachments, which has been designing and manufacturing forklift safety platforms for over three decades, partnered with Maiden’s of Telford to provide the team with a safer way of scanning and checking pallets through the use of the forklift firm’s Work Platforms.

The safety platforms are available to accommodate one to two people, have entry methods including gate and bar, come fully-certified, and comply with the latest PM28 Health and Safety regulations. They are designed with perforated mesh to ensure the barrier between the platform user and potential hazardous areas of the forklift truck are protected, as well as anti-slip floor treads with drain holes to avoid accumulation of water or risk of slipping.

Hefin Rees, Commercial Manager at Maiden’s of Telford, explained: “We approached Contact Attachments for their Work Platforms so that we could give our employees an easier and much safer way of scanning and checking pallets on our double-deck trailers. We’ve also found them useful for conducting some maintenance jobs on the trailer fleet, and for carrying out physical warehouse duties and checks.

“Having worked with Contact Attachments in a previous role, I knew we’d receive not only fantastic service, but quality products that would be perfect for the job at hand. We’re thrilled with our purchases, which have proved very popular amongst our team, and we very much look forward to working with the firm again in the future.”

Jason Cadman, Technical Sales Director at Contact Attachments, said: “Our forklift platforms and safety cages are ideal forklift attachments for when certain maintenance work is required, and allow the operator to work at height freely and safely without danger of falling. We manufacture a variety of models, some with gates for entry and others with fixed rails, and each have a security locking system to ensure the platform will not slide off the forklift. Full length fork pockets are also provided for complete stability, and harness anchorage points and on board handhold points are incorporated to ensure operator safety.”

“With over 30 years’ experience in the sector, we have built up a great reputation for providing high quality platform equipment, all of which are manufactured in-house to ensure optimum safety for the end user. I’d urge anyone interested in finding out more information to get in-touch,” Jason concluded.
