Food processing MEWP hire – a recipe for success

By Rory Duggan, Sales Director

Working at height in the food processing industry comes with additional demands over and above those found in a non-food environment: the risk of contamination is ever-present, inevitable spills of liquids, fats and food products bring increased dangers from slippery surfaces, and the need to operate in a hygienic, germ-free environment at all times is a must.

Maintaining a spotless environment demands more frequent work at height tasks such as regular cleaning and maintenance of food processing equipment including heaters and coolers as well as internal surfaces such as ceilings and walls.
