Innovation of the year
21 November 2013
AFI has won the Innovation of the Year Award in the SHP IOSH Awards for the SanctuaryZone anti-entrapment device for mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs).
SanctuaryZone comprises steel frames that project above the MEWP platform, stopping any overhead obstruction from crushing the operator. It was the first anti-entrapment device to be developed offering a physical barrier between an operator and an overhead obstruction and it is the only Tier 1 system that will fit most manufacturers’ machines.
The winners of the SHP IOSH awards were announced at a ceremony held on 24 October at the London Hilton hotel.
