Bohle will mark its support for this month’s [June] UK Health and Safety week by giving away a pair of high performance Veribor blue line pump-activated suction lifters.
Health & Safety Week runs from the 20th to 24th of June, promoting safe working practices in businesses throughout the UK and the responsibilities of employers and employees under the Health and Safety at Work Act, introduced in 1974.
Since it became law, there has been an 86 per cent reduction in fatal injuries while non-fatal injuries have fallen by 77 per cent. Despite the dramatic fall more than 142 workers still died from work related injuries and accidents in 2014/15.
To raise awareness of safe working practices Bohle is giving away a pair of high performance 601.1BL Veribor blue line pump-activated suction lifters worth over £260!
Designed to support the safe manual handling of glass, stoneware and metal, the 601.1BL has a parallel load capacity of up to 120kg and features a high visibility pressure gage, which gives a clear indication of the strength of the vacuum and suitability for lifting.
Dave Broxton, Managing Director, Bohle, said: “The glazing and glass processing industries have a reasonably good track record on safety but clearly if you’re working in any manufacturing industry, you’re exposed to an element of risk.”
“Using the right protective kit and machinery is paramount for safety. We offer an extensive range of products for glass handling, lifting and personal protection. Safety is very much everyone’s priority and we’re committed to raising awareness.”
To be in with a chance of winning the Veribor lifters from Bohle, simply send your name and contact details by email, marking the subject box ‘Safety Competition’, along with the year when the Health and Safety at Work Act, was introduced to firstname.lastname@example.org .
The winner will be drawn at random from correct entries at the end of June.*(*Terms and conditions apply )
