An is a lightweight but heavy duty platform designed to provide a safe workspace used to gain access to areas otherwise unreachable.

Many aluminum work platform products have adjustable legs that fold, some are easy to transport and portable, and they are all slip proof and free of hazards. Similar to a scaffold or gangway, they must be erected from level, solid ground and be fitted with handrails while being kept clean and tidy.

It’s important to know what size of aluminum work platform is needed to provide sufficient space to allow for ease of movement and room for equipment and materials. It’s important to know any weight limits and to ensure the platform is never overloaded. They should frequently be inspected to ensure they are in safe, good working order.
