Case Studies

Widnes Rugby League Club, Cheshire

Overview

Halton Borough Council contacted Evo Safety Solutions in February 2011. They had a Health and Safety concern at the stadium they own in Widnes, Cheshire, known as the Stobart Stadium, Halton. The stadium is the home of Widnes Vikings Rugby League Club and is also the venue for Everton FC reserve matches.

To enable the flags to be changed and raised near the main entrance required a member of staff to be in potential danger as the flagpoles were mounted along the roof edge. We supplied a Mobile Man Anchor to provide a safe anchoring point for a personal harness, so that the person responsible was never at risk of falling during the “changing of the flags” procedure.
