Rail Maintenance Platforms


Mechanics' Safety: On Track with SafeSmart

Rail transport is very important for New Zealand – for commuting, freight and tourism.
These services cannot afford to be out of commission for too long, so maintenance facilities are busy all the time. These time constraints can add pressure to maintenance facilities. And with this pressure comes a heightened risk of mechanical worker injury. Around passenger carriages, locomotives and freight-carrying rolling stock, there is a constant need to scale low-level heights to carry-out the work. And even at this low level, the risk of falls that cause injury or even death is very high, if the appropriate access equipment is not used.

See SafeSmart Access, NZ's premier designer and maker of train maintenance platforms. Rugged yet highly hand-manoeuvrable, our systems get you up close to where you need to be in a compliant and safe way. Questions about your access challenge? Ask us now.
