Safety features you should consider before buying a safety step for your industry

by Martin Jacob Equip2go

There are enough safety features within the safety steps. If you know them then it might just come in handy to ensure the safety of the workers.

Although a slip from a safety step won’t be lethal still it can inflict damage and easily cause dangerous injuries such as cuts, fractures, and muscle injuries.

In this article, we are going to mention some of the safety features within the safety steps.

Let’s begin…

Enough legroom

Of course, having legroom is a safety feature that you want to have. This might not look like a safety feature in the beginning but you soon realize that your laborers have to be given enough legroom area on the top for working freely. Having enough leg room will prevent falling from the top and allow your workers to concentrate focusing on their job more.

Anti-slipping mat or anti-slipping tape

Having an anti-slipping mat at the top of the safety steps is also a small but critical thing as a safety measure. You will have to ensure that your workers working on top of the safety step is safe while they are at work. Having an anti-slippery mat provides you with a firm leg grip.

Molded integrated plastic for high durability

It might not be a safety feature for the Plastic Safety Steps but having molded integrated plastic does help you to increase the durability of the plastic and ensure that it is best for us.

Make sure to know whether safety steps have been made using industrial-grade plastic to affirm that they are fit for working in heavy-duty industrial-grade use.

Having an anti-slipping rubber skirting at the bottom

Just like you need an anti-slipping mat at the top, you need an anti-slipping rubber skirting at the bottom too. you will have to ensure that the bottom of the safety steps can provide you with a firmer grip to the surface and does not bend or sag under immense pressure. 

Retractable wheels at the bottom

Having wheels at the bottom of the safety steps may be critical in helping with easier maneuverability but then you will also need to retract them when not in use. Thus go for wheels in your safety step but do ensure that they are retractable.

Always ensure that the safety step when placed for working should have its wheels retracted from the bottom to ensure the safety of the laborer working on top.
