HACCP equipment food safety management

Access Equipment For Food Hygiene and Clean Room Environments.


We are a specialist hirer of Powered Access Platforms and Scaffold Towers & Podium Steps, dedicated to making your jobs easier. When you are working in food processing cleanrooms you need equipment that reaches highest standards cleanliness available. The HACCP registered hire of Access Equipment allows maintenance and installations to be carried out without shut downs and decontamination.


Heaters and Coolers (Air Conditioning) also available with HACCP

Our complete range of Heaters and Coolers including air conditioning and evaporative coolers are also available with HACCP. Helping to keep production environments at the perfect temperatures whatever the weather.


We are the only Access Hire Company accredited to work to this standard

After 12 months hard work, setting up procedures and proving our systems, we have achieved accreditation for H.A.C.C.P. Compliance. (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point)

HACCP Status, enables us to give the ultimate confidence with the hire of equipment for use in food processing / production environments where hygiene and food safety is paramount, to prevent foreign bodies and bacteria entering the food chain.

To achieve this we underwent a very stringent Independent Audit, which we passed with flying colours. As far as we are aware, we are the first and only hire company in the UK to achieve this standard.

When we prepare machines for use in food production areas, as well as being safety checked, we also inspect machines for cleanliness, loose parts and that they are corrosion free. The equipment is then sprayed with sterilization fluid to kill any bacteria and rigorously checked again before being signed off by quality control and release to the customer. This ensures that the machines are suitable and safe for use in food production environments.


It’s Official - “Astley Hire is the No. 1 Hire Company for the Food Industry”

(Transcript from Press Release - download below)

Following several months of preparation; with the review of our processes and methods with particular regards to food safety, Astley Hire became the first* Hire Business to achieve third party certification demonstrating HACCP compliance. HACCP; Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point, is the methodology utilised by the food industry to identify, control and manage food safety risks in their operations.

As our client base in the food industry grew, our senior management took the unprecedented decision to implement HACCP to achieve an independently assessed competence to service the hire requirements of the food industry that fully addresses the unique technical and safety concerns of the industry. The process has involved some changes and adjustments to existing operations, training activities and the introduction of new hygiene arrangements and controls of our service to food industry clients.

From our checks in the Hire Industry as it stands, we remain arguably the first and only equipment hire company that has achieved this feat. For us, as an organisation allied to the food chain, we take seriously our responsibilities in supporting client organisations to achieve their compliance requirements as an integral part of their business goals.

“Now the North West food industry has a hire company that takes full ownership of its own food safety responsibilities seamlessly complementing the food supply chain”

Astley Hire will continue our existing culture of servicing both the stated and unstated needs of our customers. Should you require any further information regarding our HACCP certification or any other issues, kindly contact us
