Recent investment for further health and safety

NIS Group have recently invested over 50k in a fleet of Bravi Leonardo Mewps,with appropriate transport, to remove the problems associated with MST’s. The Leonardos allow our employees to reach the work face more quickly as they do not need to to worry about toeboards, out riggers, correct height of safety rails, locked brakes, or the need to remove a gate to allow the MST to be moved to another location. All these necessities when using MST’s inevitably lead to corners being cut which can lead to an accident. Removing the problem removes the risk.
