CASE STUDY: How to significantly improve safety when working at height
Read about the project of Scafftag at Bancroft, where working at height is much safer now thanks to status tagging system and lockout devices.
With 150 directly employed staff working on fast track fit-outs at any one time across the South East, health and safety has to be a priority for mechanical and electrical services company Bancroft. With increasing legislation and pressure for companies to achieve excellence in this area, Bancroft wanted to improve business performance through better management of its equipment in terms of safety, maintenance and location tracking.
The solution was a visual tagging system from equipment status management specialists, Scafftag – A Brady company. The wide range of Scafftag tagging systems makes the latest status of equipment clearly visible, where it is needed most. The tags are attached to each item of equipment providing specific details of inspections, maintenance work and asset ID number and location. Removing the insert from the holder means that any item of equipment can be instantly put into Do Not Use status. This extra level of protection allows managers and employees to make informed decisions rather than risk making assumptions.
