How to Prioritize Needs
Safety equipment is a major asset for your job site, and in order to make the most of it, it’s crucial to take the time upfront to determine what you need. Not only do you need to make sure you’re compliant with OSHA and OH&S standards, but you also want to make sure you find the right solution for your specific application and facility. Key factors like weight capacities, dimensions, installation capabilities and more should guide your decision and a qualified equipment expert like the team at Northern Platforms can help you narrow things down based on your top priorities.
Custom Vs Standard
Once you’ve narrowed down priorities, you’ll also need to decide between custom or more standard modular platforms. Both have their benefits, and chatting with your representative will help make it clear what is best suited to your dynamic. Custom platforms are ideal for tricky workspaces and for those who want the option to remove pieces that may be redundant or otherwise unneeded. On the other side, you may find that a custom configuration costs a little more or may take a little longer than you have available to be installed. In this case, modular platforms are extremely convenient and can be ready to go right away, giving you a valid solution with no downtime.
