The work platforms are inspected according to legal requirements before and after each rental, and are checked for faults and damage. Defined maintenance intervals are complied with.

In addition to physical (over 18) and mental suitability, there are technical prerequisites (IPAF training, PAL card, etc.), as well as documents and sources of information that must be observed (operating manual, operating instructions, etc.). The personal protective equipment required for use and a visual inspection of the devices must be adhered to.
A detailed list of the safety information is provided in the “Mobile lifting work platforms” leaflet from the Austrian Workers' Compensation Board, AUVA.

We offer optional theft protection for platforms, lift trucks and mini crawler cranes as a special service. The machinery breakage insurance that is included in the rental price remains part of our quotations.
