There has always been one industrial product that has slipped under the radar when it comes to proper certification, and that is mobile steps.
I have always found it bizarre that the much-maligned Health and Safety industry has obsessed about dressing children in hi-viz jackets, safety goggles and hard hats in order to play conkers while completely ignoring a warehouse person perched fifteen feet up on a set of mobile steps.
Until now, a set of mobile steps could be knocked up by a blind, one-armed coconut farmer. It would carry same amount of certification (i.e. none) as a highly designed product made by the world’s greatest engineers, the British.
That is, until now. Our friends at Redhill have manufactured the first BSi range of mobile steps, and they are truly fantastic. Now call me a bit of a Health and Safety anorak, but when I am standing on the top of a fifteen tread set of steps in our warehouse, I would quite like to know that the steps on which I am balancing have been tested to the highest quality standards. And I guess you would too.
