High Access, in the UK, has added hi viz outrigger pads to its inventory of access equipment. They alert pedestrians passing close to powered access equipment to the potential trip hazard.

High Access purchased the hi viz units from Outriggerpads, which is part of the IAPS Group.

The UK firm, which provides high-level maintenance and cleaning services to the commercial property sector, has already used the hi viz pads on several contracts. These have included The Avenue at Spinningfields, Market Street and St Ann’s Square in Manchester, as well as St Ann’s Shopping Centre in Harrow and Mann Island in Liverpool.

Adam Bethell of High Access said, “Safety is at the core of our business and that means safeguarding people on the ground as well as our employees in the air. We always mark off the space around a platform or vehicle using cones, but you still get the odd member of the public who walks into that area. The hi viz pads enhance our ability to flag up the trip hazard and help to divert pedestrians completely around the site, rather than through it.”
