During bricklaying activities, there is a high risk of musculoskeletal injuries, due to the repetitive bending required to retrieve mortar from the mortar boards.

The Ecospot is a bracket and mortar board that attaches to any standard scaffolding. It can be adjusted to suit any height that is comfortable for each individual bricklayer.

These are currently in use on Mace’s Binfield Learning Village Project and the bricklayers on site have given very positive feedback and have noticed a reduction in back pain, and in turn increased productivity.

Studies by Visafe found that the Ecospot board:

  • Helps prevent musculoskeletal injuries, which in turn reduces the amount of days lost per year through sickness;
  • Workforce will have a longer and healthier career in construction;
  • Masonry programme build time can be reduced by up to 17%.
