Aerial work platforms, otherwise known as mobile elevating work platforms, have long since been a staple in the maintenance and construction industry for reaching difficult work areas. More stable than scaffolding or ladders with the added benefit of being highly mobile, these machines provide a safe, steady position from which electricians, plumbers and other technicians can work in comfort.
Since these machines require a significant investment, construction and maintenance companies often opt to hiring them from a reputable tool hire company rather than buying. This makes good financial sense and, as long as you partner with a company that is dedicated to quality maintenance of their equipment, you’ll have the peace of mind you need.
In order to operate one of these machines, however, you will have to show proof of training and a thorough check of the equipment is always recommended before use.
