Be lead aware – Spencer Henshaw’s new Vacmaster

Published: 10 October 2018

Spencer Henshaw Limited (SHL) Operations Director Tom Lavery says it’s essential for tenants and staff that lead waste is not left behind after a job is finished.

So when Exterior Paint Manager Alfreda Williams suggested changing to the Vacmaster Industrial Wet & Dry vacuum cleaner, SHL agreed to trial the machine on an exterior paint job in the Auckland suburb of Mt Albert.

Tom says the trial was a resounding success.

“The Vacmaster proved ideal for the type of heavy work we were doing. Other features on the machine also went even further than the machines we had been using to protect workers and tenants”.

“As the health and safety of our staff and tenants is our top priority, we decided to make the machines available to all supervisors and at no cost to our interior and exterior carpenters and painters and exterior pre-paint maintenance contractors across all four SHL regions,” Tom says.
