Safety First: Best Practices for Using Work Platform Hop-Ups in the Workplace

How to use a work platform on a working space? Work platforms and hop ups are very stable and safe products to use, but there are some points which need to be paid attention to in order to guarantee safety during the use. What are the correct procedures when using a work platform hop up in a completely safe manner to avoid accidents of any type? Let’s consider together the most common practices for using work platform hop-ups

Fix type work platform ladders

Regarding all types of industrial ladders, there are safety provisions both for the construction of the product itself and for its use in the workplace. Professional products are always accompanied by detailed instruction manuals with all the precautions for use and for the product maintenance, since a correct maintenance is also very important to ensure safety. All users must be aware of the correct way to use the product.

Adjustable work platforms

In case of platforms and ladders adjustable in height, the user needs to make sure that the ladder is completely opened and blocked before use. Height adjustable work platforms have security blocks to avoid unpleasant surprises during the use.

Do not overload

Whether a simple step stool or a platform ladder, all of our products have a maximum load capacity. It is important that the user is concerned about the maximum load before using any type of ladder work platform, both for human weight and for the weight of equipment. The space of the platform also needs to be taken in consideration when positioning the working materials or other working equipment.

Work on flat surfaces

Work platforms ladders can be very solid and steady as far as they are used on flat surfaces. It is important to consider the consistency and the inclination of the land where the hop-ups are placed and avoid non-flat surfaces or slippery surfaces when using the work platform hop-ups.

Never exceed working height

Any ladder work platform has a maximum height. The working height can be considered the total sum of the platform height plus the height of the operator. Do not exceed the working height when positioning or working on elevated locations to store goods of just for maintenance work to avoid fallings. It is also important not to expose yourself from the platform during the work phases. Do not add additional height by using blocks or other material on top of the platform.

Work only on the platform

For different kinds of particular operation and particular heights, it is important to work only from the platform protected place and not to work on the steps. Work platform steps are anti-slip to facilitate the climbing on the platform but are not conformed to work on them at certain heights.

Do not combine two or more products together

Do not place one tool on top of another tool or build towers of any kind to reach high places. Each single product must be used in maximum safety due to its specific usage properties, and must not be used improperly.

Consider the weather before use

When using a product for outdoor use, always consider the weather conditions to avoid dangers and inconveniences. Do not use hop ups or platform ladders outside during rain, snow, high wind or under other similar adverse weather conditions.

For any other issue on matters of safety use of hop-ups, step stools and platform ladders feel free to contact our staff.
