An industrial work platform is a structure that is built to allow workers to stand for long periods of time at a specific height. It is safer than a ladder and allows more space to move around. It also helps you comply with OSHA’s Working at Height Regulations which requires guardrails and a toe board to prevent items from falling off the edge of the platform onto other workers below.
These structures can be modular or structural in design and are often pre-fabricated. Structural raised platforms are custom designed for parameter size and load points and can be incorporated with other raised equipment like industrial stairs, landings and railing. The engineering for these structures typically takes half the time it does to build one at a local fabrication shop, and they can be installed much faster.
