Combisafe, which is a Honeywell company and provider of temporary collective protection, has unveiled the new COMBISAFE Loading System MkII. Together with the COMBISAFE SkyReach Anchor, the firm says the Loading System MKII enables workers to safely load or unload flatbed trailers and raised decks in yards or on work-sites.
“According to the Health and Safety Executive, the most common major workplace transport injuries are low falls from vehicles. These account for almost half of major injuries reported, particularly when loading or unloading is involved,” said Wayne Kensett, product manager for Combisafe. “The new Loading System MKII not only enhances worker safety, but has enabled us to create a wider range of user-friendly features significantly improving the transportation, installation and operation of the system.”
Combisafe say the new COMBISAFE Loading System MkII is CE Certified to EN795 Type E and comes flat-packed to make it easier to move and store. Assembly and disassembly is quick and simple thanks to the new boltless design and with adjustable feet, the base can remain level even when placed on rough ground, they add.
The company goes on to explain that, when positioned adjacent to a lorry bed, the complete system can be set up in five simple steps. With the SkyReach Anchor installed, employees can work safely up to five metres from the ground with an operating radius of up to eight and a half metres, they say. Combisafe add that it is also compatible with all EN361-certified harnesses and has been tested and approved with the Miller® Falcon product family of self-retracting lifelines.
