SJR hosts ‘Innovations in working at heights’ event
Safe working at heights remains an ongoing priority in the industry. In a sector where fewer people have to perform work faster, innovation is in many ways the ideal driver. On Tuesday, 7 May 2019, iTanks and NVDO organised the ‘Innovations in working at heights’ event at SJR Group on this topic.
Ivo van der Gaag (SJR Group/ASG), Pascal Spiekerman (Koole Terminals) and Peter Hecker and Jan ten Doeschate (VSB) addressed a packed room about the field and the importance of safe working practices. They were followed by a series of pitches and live demonstrations, delivered by Brand, Doornbos, McNetiq, M.J. van Riel, Riwal, Ronik, Van der Ende and Vertidrive, of innovative systems and products for safe working at heights. Considerable attention was focused on the role robotics and digitisation will play in guaranteeing safer working practices.
