When you manage a busy workplace, efficiency is important. But in the rush to get the job done, people can cut corners. Especially when it comes to safety. If your staff have to reach for things on high shelves, they might stand on boxes or chairs to save time. This is a common safety hazard that you can avoid by investing in some handy plastic steps. So what plastic steps do you need for your business?
You’re doing a stationery stock-take or you need to reach for a file on the top shelf. You don’t need to climb high enough to justify using a stepladder or a ladder. However, standing on a wobbly chair isn’t the best idea. So what’s your perfect match?
Some handy steps will make light work of reaching items at height. These steps come in a variety of configurations from 1-4 steps, so you can choose the unit that meets your needs. The 4-step model is available with a handrail too for extra safety. They’re easy to clean and won’t rust or crack under stress. A savvy investment for your business.
When you’re returning those heavy reference books to the top shelves, you need something equally as sturdy to stand on.
This steps stool is lightweight, easy to move around, and very sturdy. Its arched design and heavy-duty rubber bumper around the base make it strong and secure. Just the peace of mind you want when you’re working at height.
The new terms are underway and with it comes a mountain of paperwork and lots of new textbooks and stationery. While you’re busy sorting everything out, floor space is probably limited. You need to get those files and folders up on the shelves and the stationery into the cupboard where it belongs.
When you don’t have room for a set of big steps, the plastic step up is a great alternative. It’s easily stored under a desk when you don’t need it, and if you buy a few, they nest on top of each other. Genius. This set of plastic steps has non-slip feet for extra stability during use.
Yes, we love ladders, stepladders, and work platforms. But we also like plastic steps too. They’re the unsung heroes of the safety steps world. When you need to work at height, but you don’t have or need a ladder. They are your new best friend. Standing on a box or chair just won’t cut it.
