Are access towers safe?
Yes, access towers are safe pieces of equipment for working at a height. They provide a solid and stable platform to stand on, along with an all-round guardrail to protect from falls. They allow you complete use of your hands to get on with the job. They provide a much safer means of access than ladders and step ladders. Access to the work platform is gained using a ladder system integrated into the frame of the tower, to climb up through the inside of the tower and on to the platform through a trapdoor.
Safe use of an access tower or mobile access platform:
- Never work on a platform without guardrails
- Never use a tower in strong winds
- Never climb up the outside of the tower - use the approved 3T (Through The Trapdoor) method of access.
- Never stand on an unprotected platform when building or dismantling a tower.
- Never over-reach or use other forms of access on top of a tower. If you can't reach, you need a bigger tower.
- ALWAYS follow the manufacturer’s or supplier’s instruction manual.
- Ensure that these manuals are available to the operatives erecting and using the tower, and to the person supervising the work.
