Haulotte innovations shortlisted for ACA Awards

Haulotte ACA shortlisted

Haulotte are proud to be officially shortlisted for the Australian Construction Awards 2019 for Health & Safety solution of the year. According to SafeWork Australia between 2003-13, 117 workers in the construction industry were killed by a fall from a height with three of these fatalities involving the fall from an elevated work platform (EWP). Additionally Safework Australia reported that over the 10 year period 2003 to 2012, 787 workers were killed in truck-related incidents. Of those incidents that occurred while loading or unloading a vehicle accounted for 15% of the truck-related fatalities. 

Haulotte's latest innovations, Haulotte Activ'Shield Bar and Haulotte Activ'Lighting System were submitted for the safety award as they both are key elements in reducing the risks and ensuring the safety for EWP users, operators and bystanders.

In an entrapment situation, the operator is pushed towards the bar and the machine stops automatically.  Following the alert only reverse/lowering movements are permitted, allowing the possibly panicked operator to get out of trouble without making the situation worse.

The Haulotte Activ'Lighting System illuminates the controls and the area around the boom so operators can safely carry out manoeuvres especially while loading and unloading the machine. It features a minimum of 10 lighting points around the machine to perfectly illuminate the access gate, controls and the surrounding area.
