Our latest summer blog looks at the potential dangers of lifting and what lifting solutions Speedy provide to ensure that you have everything you need for the successful  delivery of your projects.

Before any lifting operation takes place, it’s worth identifying the risks and the appropriate resources in order to safely complete the task. The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) suggests the following factors are considered:
