At BR Saunders Transport Ltd, we have a commitment to delivering safe, compliant and reliable services. That’s why all our drivers and operators are highly trained. As an established haulage company, we provide a range of services, including Hiab lorry hire and portable cabin relocation. Given the risks associated with such services, it’s vital to ensure the highest standards of health and safety. We know you need to trust the company you choose for rigid lorry hire and lorry mounted crane services. So, we’ve provided some useful information about how our crane operators maintain safety when working in Reading and the surrounding areas.
Our specialist operators are just one of the reasons so many people choose us for haulage solutions. When you hire a Hiab vehicle from us, you don’t have to worry about working the crane or following safe lifting procedures because we take care of everything for you. The following are some of the key steps we take to ensure maximum safety:
Lorry mounted cranes fall under the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER). These are rules made by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and cover several aspects of using lifting equipment.
At BR Saunders Transport Ltd, we are fully compliant with LOLER. Among other things, this means all lifting equipment is strong enough and safe to use. A competent person also plans lifting operations in Reading and all employees know how to properly operate Hiab lorry hire machinery.
Risk assessments are an essential part of our job as a haulage company. Whether undertaking portable cabin relocation or the transportation of other items using rigid lorry hire, we carry out a risk assessment before crane operations.
This allows us to take precautions against potential hazards to minimise risks. Some of the factors we consider when providing Hiab lorry hire in Walton-on-Thames and Reading include:
All our drivers and lorry mounted crane operators are highly trained. We also have trained appointed persons on our team who are responsible for the execution and safety of lifting operations.
As a reputable haulage company, we only let trained and competent persons operate machinery. As well as ensuring maximum safety, this gives you the most efficient and reliable services in Reading and the surrounding areas.
Regular inspections ensure our articulated and rigid lorry hire vehicles are safe for use. From portable cabin relocation to aggregate delivery, whatever your requirements, we make sure you have a suitable and safe vehicle.
As a LOLER-compliant haulage company, we inspect our vehicles before their first use, after any incident that may cause damage, after repairs and at regular intervals throughout their lifespans.
