Below are some questions that you can ask in order to get the best, most efficient equipment specified for your job:
– Who will use the equipment? – How many people will be in the platform at once? – Will they have tools or equipment with them? – Does the operator have the correct IPAF training?
What kind of work will be carried out? – What are you lifting, and how much does it weigh? – What are the obstacles on the worksite? – What is your power source preference?
– Where will the equipment be used? – Is the work indoors, outdoors, or a combination? – Do you need to drive up or down a ramp? – Do you need doorway access & what size? – Is the terrain level? Is there a slab, concrete, or asphalt floor? – Is there access to mains electricity on site for charging batteries?
– How will the equipment be used? – How high (vertically) do you need to reach or work? – How much outreach (horizontally) is needed?
– When will the equipment be used? For how long at a time?
