Aerial work platform (AWP) provides complete safety to work at heights. Daedalus is a company that provides AWP products and solutions indigenously.
The use of aerial work platforms in India is still to gather momentum, in spite of the growing construction and urban infrastructure development. Increased awareness on safety among the end-users and a growing rental market are expected to drive the market in future.
Being the safest means of working at heights, Aerial Work Platforms (AWPs) are naturally the option to work at height safely. However, use of AWPs in India is still limited and is picking up slowly.
Safety, productivity, and less downtime determine the usage of AWPs in a project. AWPs are not only a safety related equipment, but it also enhances the productivity and speed of the project, thus contributing to the profitability of one's business.
There is always risk involved in working at heights. Introduction of aerial work platforms has made it easy for workers perform well without any risk of falling, leading to timely completion of the work with higher productivity.
Aerial work platforms are not just machines that ensure safety to people when they are working at height but alongside it vastly increases productivity. Work can be done more efficiently and quickly, and timelines can be met.
With growing safety awareness, the Aerial Work Platforms (AWPs), one of the best solutions to keep people safe, while working at heights, is poised for exponential growth in the near future.
As the access equipment industry matures in India and users become more aware on the advantages of using such equipment over conventional practices of working at heights, the rental sector in India is poised for a very bright and promising future.
In developed countries, there are legislations in place which ensure AWPs are used for working at heights. We strongly believe that such legislations should come in India too, says Souma Ray, Director, Haulotte India. Excerpts from the interview
