Work Platforms for Sale in Michigan
Many types of work occur at elevated heights. Some work is stationary, and some has a need for mobility. All elevated platforms must comply with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements due to the high risk of falls. Common safety features include handrails, safety chains, mesh back panels, anti-slip treads, and weight bearing capacity ratings.
Shelving + Rack Systems Inc. (SRS) offers both manually operated and powered elevated work platforms. Rolling ladders and staircases are examples of manual equipment. Hydraulic and pneumatic scissor lifts are only a couple examples of powered equipment available.
Selecting the correct equipment begins by defining the specific or general elevated work tasks required. Elevated commercial and industrial work tasks vary from construction work, equipment maintenance, light bulb replacement, to stock picking, and so on. These involve raising people, tools, and materials to heights in a safe and ergonomic manner.
Safety and ergonomics require platform accessories like side and sliding tool trays and materials storage. Often there is a need for two people working on the same platform. The right accessories enable this plus reduce the risk of dropping handheld equipment or tripping on the material placed on the floor of the platform.
Elevated work platforms need level standing surfaces. Platforms able to raise workers and materials in small increments increases equipment flexibly. Equipment can be outfitted with emergency stop buttons for remote control of the platform when needed.
Elevated work platforms are not only about safety. The correct aerial solution is both easy to use and cost-effective. Going vertical with your operations is a way of doing more with the less square footage. You’ll find Shelving + Rack Systems Inc. has a wide choice of equipment meeting your specific vertical work applications.
