Safety & Health Awareness Day

On the 14th November 2012 the newly formed Lancashire Working Well Together Group held it`s first Safety & Health Awareness Day at the Park Hall Hotel in Charnock Richard near Chorley. WWT is a HSE backed initiative which promotes Health & Safety to SME contractors in 17 regions across the country.

One of the main topics was working at low heights & One Stop Hire was invited by the group to display & demonstrate its range of alloy & battery operated access products to the 300 plus delegates. One Stop Hire has invested heavily in these products this year & has seen massive growth in this sector.

Items highlighted were;

  • Turner Access – Betaguard Alloy Tower system.
  • Power Tower – Nano – NanoSP & Power Tower models
  • Youngman Boss – Minimax Tower & Minit Adjustable Podiums

One stop Hire was also supported by Hilti who displayed some of their new cordless tools & products.

Steve Hitchen MD of One Stop Hire commented “The WWT working group is a perfect forum for our business, it is a regional organisation targeting SME contractors which is what we are all about & to get 300 potential customers coming to see you & your products in a day is a massive bonus & would take the sales team about 12 months to achieve in these times”. “It is also a great initiative to offer FREE seminars & open days to the smaller contractors who sometimes struggle with Health & Safety information & new legislation”.” We hope to support the Lancashire WWT group further in the future & thank them for involving us”.
