Each construction project is unique and comes with its own set of challenges and opportunities. It is pivotal for the success of the project that potential risks are identified and managed effectively through proper planning and execution to avoid exposure to the damaging effects of occupational, contractual or financial risks.

One area of construction which holds a great number of hazards and risk is working at height. From selecting the most appropriate method to complete elevated tasks, to managing the supply and logistics of powered access equipment across multiple contractors and disciplines, all whilst ensuring compliance and the health and safety of operators and other workers in the vicinity of work at height tasks.
 
Having worked on thousands of construction sites from the very small to large scale development projects, our vast industry experience makes us ideally positioned to provide you with expert advice, support and guidance when it comes to the provision and use of powered access equipment throughout the length of your project.

Multi-level Support

Our multi-level support ranges from the sole supply of MEWP’s, to our award-winning portfolio of enhanced safety measures including material handling solutions, anti-entrapment devices and telematic controls, to dedicated on-site engineering and MEWP management. Our highly skilled staff are on hand to assist you to minimise and avoid risk at every stage in your build programme.
 
This is best displayed in our robust Partnered Managed Service offering commonly seen on major construction projects throughout the UK including Battersea Power Station, Manchester Airport and Dumfries & Galloway Royal Infirmary.

Partnered Managed Service

Our Partnered Managed Service streamlines the provision of powered access on large construction projects by creating a MEWP Management Partnership between Nationwide Platforms, the Principal Contractor and Trade Contractors. By working in partnership with our customers and their supply chain we are able to offer a wealth of benefits throughout their project life cycle by identifying and managing all aspects of powered access on-site.
