Founder and managing director at Semmco, Stuart McOnie says, “We are incredibly conscious of the welfare of workers and protecting them against the potential hazards they may face at work. We want to create equipment that will support them in what they do, not hinder or harm them at work. For this reason, we use lightweight aluminium in all our access steps and platforms, and ensure our ground support equipment is innovatively designed and is easily manoeuvrable and height adjustable to help reduce the burden of heavy maintenance equipment. “Not only does providing engineers with intelligently built equipment keep them safe from workplace risks associated with tasks such as working at height, but prioritising worker welfare and wellbeing through ergonomically designed equipment improves productivity, service quality, and employee engagement, and helps to create a better safety culture.” This year marks a milestone for Semmco as the company celebrates 25 years in business innovation. Semmco’s global network of aviation clients includes Delta, Air Canada, British Airways, and jetBlue. The company recently opened its first U.S. office in Texas, following the launch of its maintenance and assembly facility in Dubai in January 2017. It is headquartered in Woking, UK. An employer who neglects or fails to minimise risk to ensure worker safety can be found liable if any employee in their care suffers a serious injury caused when working at height.
