When maintenance staff have to walk on uneven and slippery surfaces for maintenance activities, it can be a recipe for accidents and injuries. A SafeSmart client who operated a fleet of plant machines experienced this. Inadequate ladders and steps were constantly being repositioned and contractors were not able to reach engine bays and other points of maintenance without overreaching.
SafeSmart’s in-house design team came up with this loader platform, made from high-tensile aluminum for hand-portability and weather resistance. The system simply wheeled up to vehicles and foot-locked into place, creating an extra set of steps and stable working platform on both sides of the loader, as well as a platform that spans across the entire loader, for access to windscreens and the engine. And despite being custom in nature, the unit is as compliant to OSHA codes as any other ‘off the shelf’ unit is.
We can design and build any platform to suit any plant equipment – Caterpillar, Komatsu, John Deere, anything.
