OSHA and Scaffold Industry Association Alliance Develop Transport Platform (TP) Safety Tips

Kansas City, MO - Kansas City, MO - Through the OSHA and Scaffold Industry Association (SIA) Alliance, SIA developed "Transport Platform (TP) Safety Tips." The Safety Tips are tools designed to education users on the correct way to perform their work on Transport Platform equipment.

"The recently approved Transport Platform Safety Tips is the second document of its kind developed through the SIA / OSHA Alliance Program, and a huge step forward in OSHA recognizing this new type of equipment. Along with the ANSI standard approved in 2009, these safety tips will reach the people using this type of product and help educate them on the safe and proper use of Transport Platforms. The Mast Climbing Council looks forward to working with OSHA, through the Alliance Program, to develop additional safety related material," said Greg Janda, SIA Mast Climbing Council Chair and document coordinator.
