REDUCE THE CLIMB – SAVE TIME
Less man-hours means less labor costs and that’s a real plus in today’s economy. With TopLock you save man hours by eliminating the need to climb up and down, up and down! Just stay on Top… and Lock.
TOPLOCK MEETS OR EXCEEDS OSHA STANDARDS
According to OSHA, an installer can move the scaffold without climbing down, but the irony of this is, if he doesn’t climb down he has no way of locking the wheels…until now. TopLock provides the “equivalent means” to prevent movement of the scaffold without climbing down.
OSHA states: Section 1926.452-(W) Mobile Scaffolds-(2-3)
(2) Scaffold casters and wheels shall be locked with positive wheel and/or wheel and swivel locks, or EQUIVALENT MEANS to prevent movement of the scaffold while the scaffold is used in a stationary manner. (3) Manual force used to move the scaffold shall be applied as close to the base as practical, but not more than 5 feet (1.5m) above the supporting surface. Also see Section 1926.451-(f) Use-(5)
(OSHA Construction Industry Regulations)
According to a interpretation letter we received from OSHA, as long as TopLock’s deployable feet render the scaffold immobile, (and they do) these feet would provide the “equivalent means”.
TOPLOCK REDUCES SAFETY VIOLATIONS
Improper usage of scaffolding equipment is fined by OSHA more than any other safety violation. TopLock is so simple to use that your workers can easily comply with the OSHA standards.
TOPLOCK IS AFFORDABLE
TopLock is not only affordable, it saves you money in lost time on the job by reducing the climb for your installers.
