or casters on a rigid base with steps leading to a top step. A
mobile ladder stand also may have handrails and is designed
for use by one employee at a time." The new rule also went
on to define mobile ladder stand platforms (often referred to
as work platforms) as a "mobile, fixed-height, self-supporting
unit having one or more standing platforms that are provided
with means of access or egress." Given the fact that the vast
majority of aircraft maintenance occurs at elevated levels, it
is easy to understand why aerospace facilities rely heavily on
these pieces of equipment to get their technicians within arm's
reach of the task at hand.
Facilities that choose to utilize mobile ladder stands and/or
platforms in the maintenance of their aircraft have an obligation to ensure that the elevated equipment complies with the
following OSHA regulations (listed in no specific order):
* The steps of the mobile ladder stand or platform must have:
a step width of at least 16 inches (41 centimeters); a rise of
not more than 10 inches (25 centimeters); and a depth of not
less than 7 inches (18 centimeters). Additionally, steps must
be uniformly spaced and arranged.

INVESTING IN rolling ladders and work platforms
that comply with OSHA's regulations is the first
step in providing a greater level of safety.
* The steps and working surfaces on the mobile ladder stand
or platform must be slip resistant. Slip resistant surfaces
must be either an integral part of the design and construction of the mobile ladder stand or platform or added as a
secondary process or operation (i.e. dimpling, knurling,
