HLS is an independent provider of equipment, consultancy, service and training in support of working at height. It helps clients complete routine as well as complex tasks safely and with considerably more ease.

Five years ago, HLS launched its own-brand Hugo Lift – a pioneering access platform designed to provide a safer working environment when working at height indoors. To mark the anniversary of this launch, they are hosting the 2019 Yorkshire Work at Height Breakfast Seminar (YWAHBS), which is set to take place on 23rd January at Carrwood Park in Leeds.

Infinitely portable and available for hire, lease or purchase, the Hugo Lift is an impressive piece of kit which has already proven invaluable - particularly when there is restricted access or as a safer alternative to using steps or ladders. By hosting the upcoming seminar at the start of 2019, HLS will be encouraging further collaboration across the various industries, raising awareness of safety and sharing the company's industry-leading knowledge, as well as highlighting key areas for adhering to best practice.

“We are delighted to announce the fifth anniversary of the Hugo Lift, and there is no better way for us to celebrate than to continue with making the workplace a safer and more effective environment,” said Stuart Honeywood, Managing Director at HLS. “The upcoming breakfast seminar will highlight areas where we could all improve – as well as demonstrating the methodologies which have helped us develop a market-leading brand whilst mitigating workplace risks.”

Stuart brings more than twenty-five years of experience to the work-at-height industry, with extensive knowledge of access platforms, safety, compliance and best practice – as well as the best practical solutions, consultancy services and training. As the keynote speaker at the event, his briefing will include detailing key case studies and statistical data as well as explaining an employer and employees' mutual responsibilities, encouraging a more cohesive and cooperative workplace.

Additional speakers include Dave Treacher, a senior IPAF Instructor, who will guide guests through the responsibilities of an organisation in relation to managing and supervising the working at height activities of staff and contractors. This informative breakfast seminar is aimed at professionals in the sphere of procurement, building and facilities management, health and safety, engineering, hygiene and local government – and will be accompanied by plenty of real-world information to help guests achieve their goals.
