Forklift Platforms - Safety Cages - Equip2Go
Introduction to Our Heavy Duty Work Platform Safety Cages
Work platform safety cages and safety harnesses are designed to protect workers when working at heights in the manufacturing industry. In particular, our forklift access platforms are forklift add-ons that safely secure into position with retaining pins to become an adjustable forklift work platform. At Equip2Go, we have forklift safety cages in both collapsible and non-collapsible forms, providing your workers with a stable and reliable way to lift your employees to a height using forklifts. As our secure work platforms alleviate much of the potential for harm, your employees can work securely knowing that they are safe.
Industrial Uses for Our Forklift Platforms and Safety Cages
Forklift work platforms can be used to perform multiple tasks in warehouse and factory environments. For example, you can use our forklift work cages to perform warehouse maintenance, elevated stock checking, replacing light bulbs and various other manual tasks. With our forklift safety platform, you can reach heights easily to perform manual tasks and other everyday duties.
Collapsibility Features of Our Collapsible Safety Cages
Our forklift personnel cages come in both collapsible and non-collapsible forms, meaning that our Collapsible Work Platform Safety Cage (TSWPF) can be folded for convenient transport and storage. Easy to assemble and disassemble, this collapsible forklift platform is perfect for freighting use and can make a huge difference in workplaces that are short on space.

Safety Measures You Can Follow to Ensure Your Safety When Using Our Safety Cage Equipment
There are a few measures that you can carry out to ensure your employee’s safety when using our work platforms. Firstly, it is recommended that you perform a test lift before it is properly used and a person enters the safety cage. This is to verify that it is secure and safe to use. Secondly, the person using the safety cage should already be inside before it is raised and/or lowered. Where possible, they should avoid climbing in and out once the safety cage has been raised, unless it is an emergency. Lastly, the user should always be attached to an anchorage by a safety harness when inside the forklift cage. The only exception to this is if the safety cage is fully enclosed. By following these safety measures, you can ensure the safety of all employees when using this safety cage.
