The Ultimate Guide to Podium Step Hire

The Ultimate Guide to Podium Step Hire
05/10/2019

Things to consider The work to be done – the need to adjust your working position while at height will determine whether you need podium steps. The nature of the work will also influence their height, type and size. The rules and regulations on working at height and hazardous areas – when you hire podium steps, you need to make sure they comply with all the laws on working at height and working in areas where hazardous chemicals, gases and electricity are present. Introduction Those of you looking to work at height, there is a wide range of access equipment available for hire. Whereas scaffold towers are used more for exterior jobs such as painting a house or roof repairs, podium steps are ideal for reaching smaller heights, tasks such as changing light bulbs, fixing vents, air-con maintenance and the like.

So why use podium steps? According to the Health and Safety Executive, on average 50 people in Great Britain die each year as a result of a fall from height, and nearly 9,000 are seriously injured. Podium steps keep you safe, they provide a secure way of reaching difficult heights where a ladder would not be appropriate or sufficiently safe.

Lakeside-Hire provide a wide range of podium steps as outlined in this guide. Popular podiums such as the mark 1, delta decks, desk surfers and adjusta minits are all available for hire nationwide.

What are podium steps? Manufactured to the very highest specification, podium steps are made from lightweight aluminium materials making them very strong but also easily manoeuvrable. Similar to ladders, podiums have vertical or inclined steps but with a platform at the top to stand on. This platform is surrounded by guard rails to protect workers from falling, preventing injury. Available to hire in a wide range of sizes and specifications, podium steps can be more versatile than a ladder.
