London Construction Awards finalists

July 2018

Our revolutionary Alto Ultima® Tower and the market leading Alto BS 8620 Podium have both been shortlisted again for industry awards – this time in the London Construction Awards Health and Safety Solution of the Year.

 

Our research and development focus on minimising safety risks for access equipment users continues to bear fruit, keeping the Alto Access range at the forefront of safety in working at height.

 

Founder and Design Director John Moreby commented “Our focus on improving safety for access equipment users remains undimmed – the recently announced HSE statistics for 2017 show an increase in falls from height.  Products such as the Alto Ultima® Tower with its added layers of protection can make a significant contribution to reducing injuries from such accidents. We are so pleased that our radical product innovations and design innovations directed at improving the safety of working at height are being recognised in this way.”

 

CEO Charles Wright commented “Falls from height have for many years been the biggest cause of death and serious injury in the construction workplace and working at height remains statistically the most significant risk to construction workers’ safety despite the improvements that have been made to date. Despite the apparently obvious nature of the risk – too many companies are prepared to put their workers at risk by using unsuitable, inadequate and unsafe equipment when they send their employees and contractors aloft.  Their choices may seem cheaper at the outset – but are infinitely more costly in reality”.
