Mobile Safety Steps
What are Mobile Safety Steps?
Mobile Safety Steps (also variously referred to as warehouse steps, aircraft steps, industrial mobile steps, access steps or platform steps) are used in place of ladders to allow a person to work safely at height. Safety Steps are self-supporting with a stable platform to work from. They are fitted with castors or wheels, making them mobile and allowing them to be moved safely and easily.
Mobile Safety Steps are a safe alternative to conventional ladders which can be unstable and difficult to manoeuvre. The robust construction provides stability, security and support for the operator.
Where are Mobile Safety Steps used?
These robust steps can be used in most locations where there is a need for people to work at height. They play a vital role in any ‘safety at work’ initiative, supporting you in keeping your workforce and premises safe.
Providing your workforce with the right equipment helps you to run a productive and efficient business.
In order to maximise storage space, many buildings are designed with high ceilings and when this is the case, the use of mobile safety steps is invaluable to help employees to reach high storage shelves and racking easily, without risking injury to themselves or others. They are designed to get to areas unreachable by a conventional stepladder safely.
Typically you will find mobile safety steps in use in;
- supermarkets and retail stores
- distribution centres
- inspection bays
- aircraft hangars
- aircraft terminals
- industrial buildings
Safety steps are a prerequisite in most commercial, industrial and government facilities and buildings when there is a need for manual elevation for any purpose. These businesses use such mobile steps in accordance with safety laws and for the benefit of their employees.
