I write in my capacity as the regular columnist on Health and safety matters since 1994 in the UK trade journal ‘Elevation’. I also serve on various safety related British and European Standards Committees.
In my opinion, the Stronghold lift product brings simplicity and safety to lift installation. I have investigated many falls down lift shafts and reports of falls globally are regular. In my opinion this product will go along way to reducing those statitics and thus reducing fatalities and serious injuries. In addition the product provides harness and lifting points which will reduce the need for long slings to be used thus reducing potential fall distances and reducing the possibility of slings getting caught up and/or worn against abrasive surfaces over long distances. In ,my opinion this product will go along way towards achieving compliance with the industry recognised standard BS7255 ‘safe working on lifts’.
I gain no reward, financial or otherwise from making this statement and will be reviewing the product in trade journals globally.
