These regulations apply to all work at height , in any place , where if precautions were not taken a person could fall down & injure themselves
ARE YOUR WAREHOUSE STEPS CERTIFIED TO EN-131 ?
Following the introduction of part 7 to the EN131 standard there is growing interest in certified warehouse steps . Heavy duty warehouse steps were previously covered within the European BGI637 standard and this standard was effectively incorporated into the scope of EN131-7 in September 2013 . This , together with the previous levels of parts 1 to 3 of the EN131 standard , has defined criteria for design , test and certification across a wide spectrum of step units . We have a vast range of UK manufactured steps which are certified to the EN131 standard and the EN14183 standard and users are becoming increasingly interested in using products that have the benefit of conformance and certification . No longer can manufacturers & suppliers say that there is no British standard .
We have been the only UK manufacturer of Safety Steps which are accredited to the European GS & DGUV Standard for many years and elements of these relevant standards have been incorporated into our design and test criteria for all of our UK manufactured steps . This is so we can ensure that the necessary levels of product strength , durability and stability are achieved . Our manufacturing processes all take place under controlled conditions conforming to ISO : 9001 ensuring product conformity is verified .
