HR Policy


Safety always comes first in our company. In this business, there is no room for blurring the lines when it comes to requirements on physical safety. Naturally, we provide our staff with a safe working environment by following all necessary rules and procedures. While operating equipment, our experts know everything there is to know about working at height. While advising customers, we will go the extra mile to make sure the parties we work with can benefit from our expertise on safety. 

Securing candor is also high on the agenda. We want all Manlift employees to feel safe while interacting with their colleagues, managers and customers. Having and demonstrating respect for each other in the office or workshop is of the utmost importance. As an employer, we expect and stimulate professional behavior and provide support for staff in situations that require change. Therefore, Manlift has a whistle blowing platform with a speak up line and an external confidential advisor people can open up to. When onboarded, new colleagues are informed of our code of conduct, social media policy and data security rules to make sure Manlift provides a welcoming and safe working environment.
