Lavendon Access Services states it is the UK market leader in powered access rentals, working at height training and machine sales. With a fleet of platforms including boom lifts (cherry pickers), scissor lifts, vehicle-mounted platforms and specialist access, Lavendon provides 11,500 machines from 43 depots located throughout the UK.
Powered access machines are used in dozens of industries, for thousands of tasks and are popular in the signage sector as they provide installation teams with a safety-focused means of effective work at height, whilst also offering access to working heights between five and 72 metres.
Truck-mounted platforms are particularly popular with signage companies and were recently used for the Park Hill Flats and Royal Albert Hall Earth Hour display installations. The reason for this popularity lies in the fact that vehicle mounts can be quickly driven onto and away from working environments, which is ideal for completing work in busy locations, such as by the side of roads. Vehicle-mounted platforms also come with a machine operator, allowing the sign installation team to focus entirely on their tasks, whilst leaving the management and manoeuvring of the machine to an experienced and trained professional.
Lavendon Access Services also provides IPAF, PASMA and other working at height and workplace safety training, which has been encouraged by the director of the British Sign and Graphic Association, David Catanach. IPAF courses relate to the operation and management of access platforms and include both practical and theoretical elements.
Lavendon Access Services has received a number of awards over the past twelve months. In 2010 the business was named as Hire Company of the Year at the IAPA awards, with a RoSPA Gold Award, relating to health and safety standards, and the Construction News Specialist Award following in 2011. Most recently Lavendon Access Services retained its SAFEcontractor accreditation, which is based on attaining very high standards in safety practice and management throughout its UK depots.
