Kennards Lift & Shift specialises in the supply and installation of a range of material handling systems and safety systems for commercial environments.

The rubbish chute system is an innovative site safety system that enhances the safety of workers and makes work safer onsite.

Mattioli Bros are painting contractors assigned to a renovation project at the Immigration Museum in Melbourne. The company hired a rubbish chute system from Kennards Lift & Shift for efficient and safe waste management during the course of the project.

The project involved stripping the existing coating from the external facade and applying a new breathable coating.

Kennards Lift & Shift supplied and installed a 12-metre long rubbish chute off the scaffold with seven entries to handle the waste during the stripping phase. The installation also included wheelie bins and an electric bin tipper to handle the waste on the ground.

“OH&S was the whole reason we did it this way,” said Adam Mattioli, a principal of the company.

“We didn’t want guys going up and down eight levels of scaffolding with waste bags. It was much easier and safer for the bags to go into the chute.”

Kennards Lift & Shift also supplies a wide range of specialised equipment to help employers meet OH&S needs onsite.

Their product range includes chain blocks and winches, hoists and conveyors, material hoists, tugs, skates, stair climbers, trolleys as well as glass handling systems.

Equipment such as gas tripods, tripod recovery kits, rope positioning devices, gas detectors and air breathing rescue kits are supplied for confined space work applications.

Height safety equipment includes roofers’ kits, roof anchors, fall arrestors and safety lanyards.

Kennards Lift & Shift operates hire centres in Brisbane, Sydney, Wollongong, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
