We live in an increasingly delicate environment and are very aware that we all must contribute in a positive way to reducing damaging emissions.

Our decisions today, without doubt impact on generations to come. It is company policy to buy wise and plan minimal journeys in the following ways.

Use of tablets rather than sales contracts and delivery by paper documents. Engineers have the same tablets for all workshop and sites use.

Sorry postie, we refuse to deliver bills and all documents by post (other than legal) email is instant and saves cost and time. We ask suppliers for email correspondence and bills to us must be supplied this way.

Journeys – We operate a daily meeting with driver inclusion and agree the most economical way to deliver for clients and collect plant on the return journey with zero wasted miles. All transporters are latest available engine model, as such are cleared for use, to developing city centre standards such as London and elsewhere in the UK.

Travel – Only essential journeys for face to face meetings, (one benefit of the lockdown resulting from COVID 19) preferring to arrange face time with Microsoft Team View or Zoom technology.

Recycle – Separation of company waste, paper, plastic and metals all sent for recycling with contracted suppliers of the service. Minimise any waste to tip.

Disposal – Care taken with safe disposal of discarded office equipment, mobile phones, kitchen equipment,

Buying – We spent over £1.5M on the new stage 5 Deutz diesel engines for our hire fleet of big booms. These have zero carbon emissions and replace old fashioned, thirsty power designed 50 years ago which were high polluting.

Buying – We operate a fleet of 120 of 275 access platforms for hire using electric and hybrid technology.

Transport – We are now switching to HYBRID vehicle technology, planning to replace all cars and service vehicles as improved technology is developed.

We accept charges for and plan to revisit the environmental charge levy for clients contribution to the delivery of the billed item. Rejected in previous years by our valued clients but we believe now is the time to take another look at the fiscal contribution to save our planet.

We hope these steps show a sensible first approach to playing our part, yes it is a work in progresses as new issues and hopefully solutions develop we will refine our climate policy.

PASMA and IPAF training in a Covid-19 world https://www.eagleplatforms.com/pasma-and-ipaf-training-in-a-covid-19-world Thu, 07 May 2020 10:51:45 +0000 https://www.eagleplatforms.com/?p=49842 As Bob Dylan might put it, the times they are a-changing.

As Bob Dylan might put it, the times they are a-changing. Of this there is no doubt. The way in which we go about our daily lives, be it out and about or at work is not set to return to ‘normality’ any time soon. That being said, some things must continue and with construction work still going, warehouses working overtime picking online orders and on lockdown measures set to be eased, there are many people working at height. This remains the number one cause of injuries and fatalities in the workplace although massive increases in training and the great number of superb quality training programmes available in the UK have certainly helped in beginning to turn a corner.

So, Eagle Platforms are not about to let up in our quest for safely training delegates to work at height using best practice, compliant with the latest guidelines and helping many obtain PASMA and IPAF certificates, boosting their economic prospects as well as their ability to stay safe and help their colleagues stay safe too. There are aspects of almost all of the courses on offer, be they IPAF or PASMA accredited, that require physical attendance, as there are practical elements that must be demonstrated and fully understood before passing the courses. For these elements strict social distancing is in place and our instructors will take every precaution to ensure the safety of each and every delegate while on one of our courses. This takes precedence over everything, without in any way diluting the quality of training received.

With the practical elements taken care of on-site in much changed conditions, with all necessary precautions taken, that leaves the bulk of the training to be undertaken online over the course of remote sessions using Microsoft Teams or Zoom. If you are not familiar with Zoom or Microsoft Teams, you are not alone – prior to the Coronavirus and associated lockdown it was probably a bit of software mainly used in IT-heavy circles, but now it is a vital bit of kit used in a vast array of professions and industries. University professors have been using these to give their lectures, enabling students to carry on with their learning – at least to a degree, and our instructors have also got to grips with its potential as a great way to provide courses, while respecting social distancing.

Microsoft Teams is a collaboration tool providing remote ability to work together, sharing information across a common platform. There are a whole swathe of impressive features that make Teams the perfect choice for Eagle Platforms, including one-on-one chat, group chat, document collaboration and many more besides with the video meeting function being the overriding method of use. Furthermore Microsoft Teams is a commonly available extension available through Office 365. It is hard to understate the role Teams will play in the near future with social distancing expected to remain a feature of society for at least another year. Rest assured, no matter what the future holds, Eagle Platforms will remain your go-to company for safe working at height training.

Dear Customer,
It’s been two weeks since I last communicated with you about the dramatic impact of COVID-19 on our business. Sadly, since that time, we’ve all borne witness to how this virus is impacting our families, our communities and our very way of life. Although these are trying times for us all, I remain optimistic that our world will thrive once again.

Today, I want to let you know how we’re focused on supporting clients. I also want to provide you with an update on our delivery process and hire availability.

 

In the Community
We understand that the pulse of the world beats as one to overcome COVID-19. As we all watch the news unfold about this unprecedented event, it’s clear that there is a need to minimise the spread of the disease because of our actions. and protect our team too. To that end, we have established the following to aid in the urgent fight against the pandemic.

We have had to close our offices and works to all visitors temporarily, unless we request such a visit and arrangements will be made to take the best care of any visitor and our receiving staff.

 

Around the north of England and Midlands, we travel to sites with full PPE gear on all vehicles for the use of our team. This includes, surgical mask, disposable gloves and handwash and wipes.

Given the unprecedented disruption to the construction industry, many sites closed, and some continuing to work normally. We offer a call out system for hire and service maintenance. We are totally dependant on your own safety procedures, if or when you call us to site and trust that you like us have all your employees safety and wellbeing at the front of your mind.

 

For Our Customers
We remain committed to ensuring our customers experience flexibility during these challenging times, so I wanted to give you an update on those changes.

For clients  making new reservations for any future hire or training, including delivery and service, reservations can be placed at the following email addresses, or you can reach us directly via mobile telephone.

Eagle Platforms are delighted to welcome three incredibly valued new employees to our team including a brand new training manager. This expansion is immensely important in the light of our newly confirmed CITB Training Centre, allowing us to cope with the ever-expanding demand for our many training programmes, which continue to be the envy of the competition.

Let’s take a closer look at the new members of the Eagle Platforms team, welcoming them into the fold.

New Training ManagerNew Training Manager: Jamie Fleetwood

Taking on the role of Training Manager is Jamie Fleetwood, who with almost 10 years of experience will bring vital enthusiasm, knowledge and expertise to the team. He has previously sat on the IPAF committee as an independent instructor, which will no doubt stand him in excellent stead to impart great wisdom and technical nous on his colleagues and our valued clients alike. It is great to be able to gain the perspective of someone who has worked for one of the two great working at height training accreditors. In his private life, Jamie is an avid Star Wars fan and with his IPAF committee experience and our many years of experience on the training side, his appointment could go some way to binding the galaxy together!

Follow this link to see our full range of IPAF Training courses

 

New Service Foreman: Dave Morley

The role of a service foreman is a vital one. They are in charge of supervising and coordinating the crew and making sure things go smoothly and efficiently. As such it is important that our service foreman Dave Morley comes with 15 years of plant experience that will stand him in good stead in his new role. He comes straight from JCB, where he accrued 9 years of valuable experience and learnt a great deal about the position. In his spare time he enjoys (endures) following the Bradford Bulls – the frustration of which will lend him the requisite patience for dealing with any problems that could arise in the workplace. He will be invaluable when it comes to servicing needs and ensuring our sky high service standards remain in place.

New Senior Engineer: Chris Dent

Our new senior engineer, Chris Dent is a hugely welcome addition to the Eagle Platforms team. He joins with the benefit of almost two decades of experience gained working in the access industry. He’s worked with enormous multinational rental companies and small independent operations alike, giving him a broad spectrum of understanding and an enormous level of competency in dealing with the wide array of challenges the role will bring. Chris’ knowledge of all manner of machines from 135s to smaller pop up machinery, Chris has seen it all and being CAP certified he is fully covered to carry out LOLER examinations. Out of work, Chris is a big football fan and his patience is well honed (and sorely tested) by being an avid Sheffield Wednesday follower. Just don’t mention the current success of their city rivals: that might prove too much!

Eagle Platforms are excited to announce an offer to help all companies looking to get up to date with their working at height training. From now until 31st December 2019 all bookings for IPAF training courses are subject to a 4 for 3 offer and we are offering 6 for 5 on all PASMA accredited courses.

cherry picker trainingThere is no excuse in 2019 not to be fully invested in working at height training and there are no better courses available than the various IPAF and PASMA accredited options provided by Eagle Platforms. More than ever the focus on contracts given out for projects involving working at height will scrutinise the training credentials of candidates before giving out work to any company. In addition working at height training will almost certainly reduce the risk of accidents and injuries in the workplace, boosting staff morale and reducing the chances of costly downtime and even lawsuits. Of course having staff that are competent, confident and calm when working at height can only be a good thing, not only in terms of completing work swiftly and effectively but also in showing your company in a good and highly professional light.

When it comes to the hierarchy of accidents in the workplace, working at height has the ignominy of consistently ranking as the number one cause. Over recent years concerted efforts have been made to address this, but it remains a major issue and one which only training across the board, for employees and managers alike can address.

The two major accreditors of working at height training in the UK are PASMA and IPAF, both industry standard and responsible for overseeing a wide range of exceptional training courses in the UK.

JW Simpkin Ltd exemplify the vast spectrum of industries that needs working at height training. They are fire protection specialists who ensure that their employees are trained on courses provided by both PASMA and IPAF in order to meet site safety measures when delivering their services of fire protective boarding and intumescent painting of structural steelwork.

In terms of the kinds of businesses that need to ensure that their employees and managers are trained in safe working at height, it’s a case of how long is a piece of string. However, the industries most at risk tend to be the building trade, telecommunications, roadwork operations, decorating and window cleaning and warehouse operations. Of course there are multiple other industries that are affected. There are training courses for managers that help them understand the risks of a particular site in particular conditions and how to plan to make sure best practice is adhered to. In some ways this is just as important as ensuring those actually up on a big cherry picker are fully trained.

Ensuring that employees are fully trained is inarguably the first step towards risk mitigation. You can give everyone the top of the line Personal Protective Equipment, but if they don’t understand when conditions make it too risky to even attempt working at height, such items can be utterly useless. Before looking at all of the more specific and in some ways selfish reasons why training is important it is vital to bear in mind that according to the Health and Safety Work Act of 1974, all employers have a duty of care to ensure all employees and visitors to their premises are kept safe.

It may seem blindingly obvious, but the better trained employees are in safety procedure, the easier it is for them to focus on their jobs and become more productive. Jobs will take up less time and become more streamlined. While the initial outlay for training programmes may seem costly, employers can reap the rewards in many ways. In fact, money can be saved in the long run. Imagine the legal fees, reputational damage and fines that could be incurred should an employer be found to be at fault or negligent after a fatal accident? Yes, there should be a moral obligation, but even the hardest of business noses should appreciate the potentially damaging financial implications. It is also worth noting that contracts are starting to be withheld from under-trained organisations as it is not worth the risk of any negative publicity an accident could bring.

Finally, everyone wants to work in a happy working environment and studies show that when employees are confident in their safety and ability to adapt to different working conditions they are much happier in their roles, leading once again to better productivity and morale.

Where did it all begin?

Here at Eagle Platforms Ltd, we’ve been asked a number of times recently how the company was started and grew to where we are today.

So here it is…

Eagle Platforms Ltd, originally formed in 1988 by Silverwood coal miner James Haigh and his son, Jim Haigh (Junior) grew rapidly to become a major access provider in the north of England and was bought out in a lucrative deal by the Hewden group in 1996.
 
The company reformed after an absence of 12 years when Yvonne Abrahams, Sue and Don Horsley and Jim Haigh (now the older generation) eventually commenced trading in 2011, with the same tried and tested formula adding the IT advances in today’s marketplace .
 
“We pride ourselves in the very best quality training, including PASMA, IPAF and other safety training programmes, always giving the friendliest welcome to candidates at our Anston base and lunch is included!” Don Horsley.
 
Don has 30 plus years’ experience in the platform rental and training industry.
 
“Its all about delivering quality access platforms on time, in good order with the highest complement of extras and safety features included as standard.” Jim Haigh.
 
Operations Director Dan Stewart has developed a fully committed workforce whose collective aim is always to please. From our first year apprentice Jack Ledger to Richard Smith, our longest serving lorry driver / demonstrator, from a fleet of 6 delivery vehicles. Add Hire Manager Charlotte Hanson to Daniel Haigh, keeping the Haigh family connection to the company, and new addition Mark Caine Grierson as Sales Manager.
 
“We are called upon frequently to offer free advice on the safest and most economical access solution to any job!” Mark Cain Grierson.
 
“We complete around 600 deliveries and an equal number of collections to and from clients monthly and our record of good timekeeping and prompt collections is second to none.” Dan Stewart.
 
With a customer base as varied as any, from construction and refurbishment, to shopping malls, steel work and television work, for instance on “Open All Hours,” for their Balby, Doncaster film shoot. It is certainly an eclectic mix of clients and we never know what unusual demand is coming next.
 
Our main areas of business are throughout the north, midlands and east Anglia regions, though we are often called upon by loyal clients who cannot find the same high levels of service elsewhere, to deliver across the UK.
 
Now employing a full time team of 30, including service and maintenance staff, backroom administration and sales, all working extremely closely to guarantee the company quality vision is delivered daily.

 

where-it-all-began
 

line
 
New NVQ Level 2 apprenticeships for plant mechanics will again be available to applicants from June 1st. The two year course is funded with the help of the CITB and includes block release to college for the successful candidates.
 
“ We have employed two additional apprentices each year for the past 5 years and believe our policy to help employ in the former coal mining areas including Maltby, Thrybergh, Thurcroft, Dinnington, Woodhouse, Kiveton and Bolsover would impress founding chairman and former mining deputy James Haigh.” Paula Caine Grierson, Finance Director and HR Manager.
 
Eagle Platforms, already a business partner to Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice are delighted to have been asked to endorse Magana Science Park and would encourage any other companies with similar interests in the local community to give their support.
 
The agreement to become the first Corporate Sponsor for Magna came at the invitation of Magna Science Park CEO Kevin Tomlinson, and Chairman of the Board of Trustees at Magna, Brian Chapple.
 
“ We believe the opportunity to give back in a small way to the education of young people at the science park was unique and one we could ill afford to miss. The critical role of Magna, teaching science to local schools in an innovative, creative way, cannot be underestimated!”
 
“ The chance to increase awareness of our company and its services in the community in the process, means this was beneficial to all parties and an  opportunity that has already benefited the company with further increasing levels of business activity”
 
Jim recalls a visit to Magna as a very your boy, when Jim’s grandfather took him on what proved to be the best adventure of his young years to visit the plant at Templeborough, where Mr Deakin went to collect his weekly pay packet one Friday in 1966. What he did not expect was to be left watching the sparks, smoke and molten steel poured from ingots passing close by in the noisy melting shop. Jim obeyed Grandads orders. “Stay there and do not move!” Though clearly the wait for Mr Deakin to return from the pub, when he remembered he had left his eldest grandson behind in the steel works, was much longer than he expected.  
 
“ I am not sure what he actually did for work at the steel works but I am sure his contribution was substantial. After all this is my war hero grandad that we are talking about!” Jim Haigh

Eagle Platforms Bulletin
Feb 19

Eagle Platforms Ltd are one of the top 5 fastest growing access rental and training providers in the UK. In order to sustain this coveted position and better it in the future, it is necessary to constantly evolve and build on the strong foundation that has allowed the business to flourish over the past few years.

Haulotte HA32 STage

One of the most obvious ways Eagle Platforms have set about this is by scouring the market for the very best inventory to provide their customers with excellent options for the hire of access platforms to suit all needs and environments. This has culminated in a massive order for £1.3m of new units with industry leader Haulotte for a range of access platforms that have working heights ranging from 16m to 40m.

Haulotte are a French manufacturer well known for their high precision engineering and a dedication to quality, safety and excellence across the entirety of their product range. All of the units come with 110V PTO and secondary guards, boosting the safety of the equipment to an absolute maximum.

In terms of the training side of the Eagle Platforms business, their IPAF training centre is award winning and continues to prove immensely popular as businesses from multiple industries strive to ensure that their employees are all fully trained to work at height and reduce the incidents from the number one cause for accidents in the workplace. All courses are fully accredited by IPAF. Here are some of the courses on offer:

IPAF safety harness training

IPAF operator training

As of late 2018 Eagle Platforms took the necessary steps to provide scaffold tower training accredited by the other industry standard body PASMA to their training portfolio. This has really boosted the profile of the Eagle Platforms training centre and heightened its appeal as a one stop shop for all the training needs for companies involved in working at height as Eagle Platforms now cover the training courses provided by the two largest accreditors in working at height (IPAF and PASMA). Have a browse of their cherry picker training courses.

With over 30 years’ experience in the field and all the knowledge that brings, Eagle Platforms continue to grow year on year.

Until Easter Eagle Platforms are offering a 23% discount off normal rates for training on their PASMA courses and IPAF courses in their training centres. There are no minimum requirements for candidates to attend these courses and the offer is open to all customers, new or old. Here are some of the PASMA training courses on offer:

PASMA Towers for users training

PASMA working at height essentials training

PASMA low level access training

Here we are. 2019 – A brand new year and it is set to be a very interesting one, to say the least. After the excesses of Christmas and a severe lightening of the wallet and eroding of the bank account it is always great to find out a new offer in January.

Eagle Platforms are not a company to be left behind and have moved early to forge an excellent offer for their valued customers, past present and future. Here it is…

From the period from the 2nd of January through to March 1st 2019 Eagle Platforms will be offering a 23% discount off their normal rates for training on their PASMA courses and IPAF courses in their training centres. There are no minimum requirements for candidates to attend these courses and the offer is open to all customers, new or old. Here are just some of the courses on offer:

IPAF safety harness training

IPAF operator training

PASMA Towers for users training

PASMA working at height essentials training

PASMA low level access training

So, if you’ve been thinking about getting your safety training up to date or getting on board with the incredibly important task of ensuring that all your employees are adequately trained for working at height then there is no time like the present and it might be wise to get that booking made as high demand is anticipated.

Working at height remains the number one cause of accidents in the workplace and yet so much good work has been done and statistics will continue to improve as training becomes more widely adopted. All of the courses offered by Eagle Platforms are accredited by industry standard bodies in PASMA and IPAF and are recognized everywhere.

In order to take advantage of the New Year discount, you can head over to the website to book or contact the team on 0114 269 5909 for the very latest availability and booking options for all of the courses provided.
