Minimize the hazards associated with working on and around equipment by integrating a built-in solution for safe and comfortable access. When evaluating options, consider the type of equipment along with the frequency and duration of the access requirements of the equipment.
Improved safety and comfort
For equipment that has space restrictions, alternating tread stairs are a safer and more comfortable option than fixed ladders and ship’s ladders. Alternating tread stairs have a face forward design, just like standard stairs. Workers climb and up and down facing the direction of travel with their hands free to transport tools and other items.
Another benefit of including either standard stairs or alternating tread stairs on equipment is that handrails provide fall protection, increasing the level of safety for workers both on and around the equipment. Work platforms with guardrail systems are another option that includes fall protection.
