Health & Safety

At Weightlifter safety isn’t just a ‘bolt-on’ extra, it is built into every tipping body and trailer we make. All proprietary parts are vetted to ensure they meet Weightlifter’s stringent safety demands. Strict quality control at every stage of construction means every body and trailer we make meets or exceeds legislative requirements. All add-ons such as steps, hand rails etc are treated with the same scrutiny as the body or trailer chassis itself. The result is a complete package which reduces risk to operators and the public.

Weightlifter pride themselves on introducing the latest technology to reduce Health & Safety risks for all their employees. For example On Torch welding extraction, Low Vibration tool buying policy.
