Raise Me Up Skyjack!

Posted on 20 September 2016
The Skyjack aerial platform is a highly manoeuvrable, mobile work station designed for lifting and driving on a flat, level surface.   The Skyjack EWP is designed to transport and raise personnel, tools and materials to overhead work areas.

Having a risk control strategy in place prior to the commencement of your job is critical when working with EWP.  Key areas of consideration include:

·         The tasks to be performed

·         Identified site hazards (e.g. trenching, scaffolding etc.)

·         PPE requirements

·         Barriers

·         Signage including warning signs alerting people about overhead work

·         Traffic controls

·         Lights/ lighting, and

·         Public safety

Other possible hazard include weather condition, overhead service lines, bridges, obstructions, ground conditions, traffic and other machinery, trees and underground services. For more information refer to the Elevated Work Platform guide which can be found online through Workplace health and Safety Queensland.

What our
clients say

I have dealt with the lads at Lockyer Hire many times since working for Ipswich City Council and have found the service and equipment above and beyond my expectations.

I recently hired trestles from Lockyer Hire Service.  Their service was very professional and friendly, the trestles were promptly delivered, and picked up.  After shopping around, Lockyer Hire Service was the cheapest anywhere.  Thank you A+++++
