BACKGROUND

Travis Perkins is one of the largest suppliers to the UK’s building and construction industry with a national network of more than 650 branches.

CargoStop started working with Travis Perkins over 5 years ago to ensure that their employees, who were performing various tasks around their vehicle, were working safely. We now supply their full fleet with a cargo control kit so that all their drivers are compliant with health and safety regulations.

THE CHALLENGE

Ever since the government brought out a change in Work at Height legislation in 2005, the emphasis has been on keeping workers boots on the ground wherever possible. Needless to say Travis Perkins, with a transport fleet of 2,000 vehicles, was heavily affected by this as climbing on the back of a truck constituted ‘working at height’.

Travis Perkins, as industry leaders, were concerned that all their transport staff were protected from the risk of working on their fleet of vehicles and potential accident, they wanted to ensure the correct health and safety measures were in place.

THE SOLUTION

Travis Perkins needed a partner to deliver a solution bespoke to their ‘working at height’ needs.

Working in collaboration with Travis Perkins, the ProPole concept was enhanced and CargoStop developed dozens of different heads for the ProPole which were designed for different height related tasks around the truck. Operations such as moving straps and placing edge protectors at high level were all initiated as a result of this positive working relationship.

THE SUPPORT

We have now produced a Travis Perkins version of the CargoStop catalogue that will be shared with all of Travis Perkins PLC affiliated companies to help them become compliant.

WHAT THEY SAY...

“When we first met the team at CargoStop and they showed us the ProPole we were impressed by was what was a unique and innovative solution that we’d not seen anywhere before.”

“We are delighted to have been part of the development process of CargoStop’s high quality equipment. We have the confidence that the kit we buy from CargoStop, not only keeps our staff safe, but that is has been developed with our needs in mind.”
