Under the ‘Work at Height’ Regulations, employers have a duty of care to ensure that work at height is properly planned, appropriately supervised and carried out in a safe manner.
To help its customers adhere to these regulations, Hird is continuing to offer the best in powered access hire available throughout the UK.
Hird offers competitive rates on both short term access hire and long term access hire on a wide variety of machines.
The range of machines includes electric scissor lifts, diesel scissor lifts, electric boom lifts (or cherry pickers), diesel boom lifts and more specialist access machines such as low level personnel lifts, tracked spider booms and bi-energy access platforms.
With the demand for access hire increasing, Hird has carefully selected the best MEWPs (mobile operating work platforms) available, from the best manufacturers to make up its access hire fleet. The Hird range includes machines from leading manufacturers such as Genie (Hird is an authorised distributor), JLG, Niftylift, Manitou and Pop-Up Products.
When considering hiring powered access, it is important to ensure that operators are suitably trained. Hird has a dedicated training department offering a carefully selected suite of access training courses – all of which can be delivered at a dedicated Hird training centre or at a customer’s own site if facilities are suitable.
Hird advises and can also supply safety equipment to its access hire customers – in particular safety harnesses for sale – an absolute necessity when using any form of boom lift.
The full Hird range of powered access, or MEWPs, is available to customers throughout the UK from the company’s Northern, Central and Southern depots, or through Hird’s membership of Access Link – which is the largest network of access hire companies in the UK.
