Elev8 remains fully operational during third national lockdown

Once again, the United Kingdom enters another national lockdown to contain the spread of Covid-19 while the NHS deploys the vaccine to the most vulnerable in our society.  Many of our clients provide essential infrastructure work, construction, and essential services and all divisions of Elev8 remain fully operational and ready to help you work at height safely and provide traffic management for your project.

We know how important it is to keep the countries telecommunications, power networks and other utilities operating.  Elev8 have years of experience providing safe access and lifting across many essential sectors including telecoms, the power networks, renewable industry, construction, manufacturing, and heavy industry.  We are certified by Achilles to UDVBA Category B2 standards and are pre-approved to provide access solutions to utilities companies including telecoms, mobile phone networks and the power industry.   Elev8 are also certified to ISO9001, ISO14001, ISO45001 and SafeContractor.  If we are not already on your approved suppliers list, we are ready and able to complete your approval process swiftly.

Keeping everyone safe

We have already adapted our working procedures to keep both our team and your team as safe as possible.  Some of the practices we have in place are:

Covid precautions wash hands
  • Our team keep their hands clean with regular washing and hand sanitiser where hand washing facilities are not available.
  • Our MEWP operators take hand wipes, alcohol sanitiser gel, disposable gloves and mask to every job.
  • MEWP baskets, controls and vehicles are regularly cleaned and disinfected.
Covid precautions face mask
  • Our team make every effort to maintain a safe 2m distance from your team. Where this is not possible, we will wear a mask and kindly ask that you do too.
  • If you are collecting a cherry picker for self-drive hire, please bring your mask (unless you are exempt from wearing one) as this will be needed for familiarisation and hand over of the MEWP.
Covid precautions space
  • Our larger access platforms have MEWP cages which extend up to 3.8m long to allow social distancing whilst working at height.
  • Where it is safe to do so our MEWP baskets will be extended to full width when used for more than one person.
  • Access platforms over 28 metres can also be fitted with a MEWP basket shield, a physical barrier between our MEWP Operator and your team.

And of course, the Elev8 team follow the government guidelines for self-isolation and Covid-19 testing.

Self-drive cherry picker hire.

Access platforms up to 33m of working height are still available for self-drive hire.  Self-drive cherry pickers can be collected from one of our depots or we can deliver them directly to you.   All visitors to our depots are asked to wear a mask and we ask our self-drive customers to please bring a mask along for your familiarisation on the cherry picker. We record details of visitors and temperature checks for track and trace as requested by the Government.

Traffic Management

Elev8 have a dedicated team for supplying traffic management and ground protection should your project need it.  Why not make life easier by letting us supply safe access equipment and the traffic management that you may need to perform work at height safely.

Contract lifting & Engineering Solutions

Our trained and experience contact lifting team are available to survey, plan and execute a safe contract lifting solution for you.  If you have a contract lifting project why not let one of Elev8’s Appointed Persons use their experience and skill to find you an innovative lifting solution which is safe, cost effective and designed specifically for your project and timescales.

A huge thank you to the Elev8 team for being so adaptable and to our clients for your continued support. And of course, our deepest thanks to the NHS and keyworkers working so hard to keep the whole country safe.
