Safety In The motor Industry

Falls from height are the most common cause of serious injury & death to workers and are responsible for almost 10% of injuries in the vehicle manufacturing industry. Motor companies have a responsibility to provide safe working conditions for their operatives.

Providing appropriate safety equipment is key to ensuring that workers are protected from falls. Our products can help you stay on track and keep your staff safe.

Products & Solutions

PitProtect Open Pit Protection 


Inspection pits are among the most common causes of accidents; uncovered pits pose a threat to employees who could momentarily forget the presence of an unfenced pit or who slip or trip and fall into them. If a pit is accessible as part of a workshop open to the public, then the safety risk extends to the general public.


PitProtect is a lightweight concertina inspection pit cover. It has been created to safeguard open pits and is designed to be robust, adjustable and quick and easy to deploy. The inspection pit cover protects against falls whilst still giving access to the underside of the vehicle.

The system has been formulated with aluminium and is fully adjustable in both length and width, ensuring a perfect fit every time.

AxaForm Pit Inspection Podium

AxaForm Pit Inspection Podium


Inspection pits create risks not only to those unfamiliar with the premises but also to employees who momentarily forget the presence of an unfenced pit or who slip or trip and fall into them.


AxaForm is a robust inspection podium on castors that is wheeled into position for work. The castors retract automatically when a person steps on to the platform, and no wheel locks have to be operated. The AxaForm podium is telescopic. You can open it out sideways to work in a broader front, without interruptions from moving. Close it up for awkward places, transportation or storage.
