Machinery Removals Health & Safety Considerations

Thorough and detailed planning helps to ensure your machinery removal project goes safely and smoothly. We carefully consider all health and safety requirements to provide a clear understanding of how the lift is to be executed, minimising any risks.

Our first step is to visit your site and complete a risk assessment, reviewing floor conditions, analysing the area from which the machine is being removed, and considering any access restrictions such as low ceilings and narrow doorways.

We then undertake detailed planning, including a method statement detailing what work will be done and how. Health and safety are paramount throughout any project, and we endeavour to prepare and plan for all potential scenarios.
