Elevated Work Platforms for Working at Heights

When it comes to performing electrical work around the house and garden, safety must always be the first priority. Electrocutions and house fires are often the result of poor electrical work or unsafe work practises. These problems can usually be avoided by hiring the right professionals for the job.

Working at heights and difficult to reach places meanwhile adds another element of danger, especially when working near power lines and overhead cabling. That’s why when you need work done in high and hard to reach places on the Northern Beaches, using an elevated work platform or cherry picker by Everest Electrical is the best solution.

Dealing With Surrounding Trees and Foliage

Because we are based in Sydney’s Northern Beaches and work on the North Shore so much, we know that trees and branches can cause havoc with overhead power lines in the event of strong winds or storms. Cutting or trimming branches around your property is one of the best ways of avoiding power disruptions and damage during storms, but many local residents don’t know that clearing these from nearby power lines overhanging their property is their responsibility.

Getting this done however is no easy task. Doing so without the proper training or authorisation can be extremely dangerous, with most home owners lacking the right equipment and skill to safely remove these.

Attempting to reach areas around power lines by using ladders or other unsuitable equipment can lead to severe electrocution, injury or death. Not to mention the risk of falls from attempting to cut down tree branches from heights. It’s always best to reach out to professionals with the expertise and equipment to get the job done safely.
