Ladder Security Overview

  • Recently there was a brief delivered by the Health and Safety department and the company that that supplies us with the racking system for the Volkswagen Caddys.

    The brief advised that all three points of security MUST be used at any time when the vehicle is in motion or left for prolonged period of time.

    These three points of security being used is a mandatory update and one that will take effect with immediate predudice.

Rhino Bar Security

  • Your vehicle is equipped with a Yellow security bar that hinges into place and locks the ladder securely in place on the roof of your vehicle.

    This bar must be adjusted so that it is touching the relative rung of the ladder holding it in place whilst the vehicle is in motion or prolonged period of time.
