When assembling a piece of engineering excellence the right tools for the job are essential, particularly so when it’s a multimillion pound jet engine. One challenge that Planet Platforms recently tackled was to work round a new series of jet engines at various heights and with different engine profiles.
The issue of working at varying heights completely around an engine was to offer a pair of handed platforms with three distinct points of access; ground level, the main working platform and the platform hop-up step.
Working with the set designers for the current Girls Aloud 10th anniversary tour, Ten, the teams at Planet supplied a number of items for the main stage set. Anyone familiar with the entertainment industry will be aware how last-minute plans and designs can be and this project was no exception with Planet working around the clock so rehearsals and the main show itself would start on time.
Access innovators Planet Platforms will be participating in PASMA’s pilot event ‘Tower Week’ this June. Running from June 11th – 15th in Leeds, the Yorkshire region will see the good practice with towers being promoted by the Prefabricated Access Suppliers’ and Manufacturers’ Association and its associate members. Key messages at the event include:
1. Safe use of mobile scaffold towers
2. Versatility of towers
3. A snapshot of tower use
4. Increasing competency in the use of towers
5. Raising the awareness of PASMA
Planet Platforms supported the HSE and industry partners at the Refurbishment SHAD and Exhibition event on the 24th of January 2012, just one of the many Working Well Together campaigns that span the country each year. Each year thousands of construction workers in the UK are killed, injured or have their health damaged. The working well together campaign aims to stop the suffering.
Planet Platforms, access equipment innovators, demonstrated the benefits of low-level access systems. Their stand showcased two new and innovative products that have been recently added to the Planet portfolio.
