Safety and Productivity by Design

Epworth Hospital’s new Safetech Hoist and fall from height barriers.

Epworth Hospital adds another Safetech Hoist and fall from height barriers to their dock environment to improve staff safety.

As seen in the before photos, Epworth hospital recognised a problem in their docking environment and chose the best solution to remedy it.

Our Safetech dock hoist with fully enclosed sheeted handrails, onboard controls, and boom gates keep workers safe at the upper level.


At the dock end, an independent hydraulic load lip also acts as a fall from heights barrier. While the heavy-duty bollards and dock bumpers stop trucks from damaging the equipment and foundations.

Our fall from height options are being adopted Australia wide, as a proven solution to workplace fall injuries from outdated dock environment design.

Epworth hospital have capitalised on this by using additional Safetech boom gates to increase dock capacity in a cost-effective way.
