Apollo Cradles Reaches New Heights In Safety With The FallArrescue

Apollo Cradles, a leading UK specialist in access solutions, improves safety whilst improving worker productivity when working at heights.

Barnsley, South Yorkshire, UK (PRWEB) - Apollo Cradles, renowned as one of the leading providers of mast climbers, cradles and access platform systems throughout the UK, is able to offer national coverage, with depots in Barnsley, Manchester, Gateshead and Birmingham. The company has delivered and been involved in many substantial projects including PD Ports Quayside Repair, Barnsley College Regeneration, Coventry University Building and Hunterston Jetty Repair (Phases 1 and 2), Heysham Forebay Repairs and Humber Bridge Maintenance.

Apollo Cradles is committed to the health and safety of all workers and has introduced the FallArrescue (Fall Arrest and Rescue). This innovative system was manufactured by Getmie Safe, exclusively for Apollo and provides the user with greater confidence whilst working at heights and reducing personal risk. It removes the need for expensive standby personnel. If the user were to fall, they would be automatically lowered to the next level down that would support their weight (normally the ground). For further information about the FallArrescue and to see it in action visit http://www.apollocradles.co.uk/fallarrescue.html or watch it on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5UqzvHSF98

Kevan Herbert, Managing Director of Apollo Cradles, has been a driving force within SAEMA (Specialist Access Engineering & Maintenance Association) in putting together the NVQ level 2 qualification for temporary cradle riggers. Whilst the cradle industry is one of the safest in the construction industry, the NVQ system of training and certifying operatives will continue to improve safety for workers.

Apollo Cradles is accredited to the ISO 9001 standard and uses only fully trained and certified operatives, working to the latest standards and regulations. Safety is paramount with any project that Apollo undertakes. All access solutions serve the purpose of minimising risk with the additional benefit of using fewer man hours and less equipment than traditional scaffolding. Apollo is able is provide a complete service; from site survey through to design, project delivery, erection, maintenance and removal. Apollo strives to not only meet but exceed client expectations. The company can present many references from delighted customers.

Apollo Cradles has recently completed three contracts on EDF sites where innovation was a key component in winning and successfully completing the work. Apollo, along with Mansell, have been put forward by EDF for an innovation award. For more information, visit http://www.apollocradles.com
