Entrapment Guidance

Since 2003 eight people have been killed when operating a boom type MEWP due to trapping. As a safeguard against the risks of injury when trapped, we’ve developed the SkySiren, a pioneering retro-fit machine attachment that fits the majority of our international boom lift fleet. See the SkySiren in action.

We can also offer Entrapment Toolbox Talks to make you and your team more alert to the risks and preventative measures that can be taken against trapping.
