There are many factors to consider when looking for access equipment for painting and coating work at heights, i.e. understanding your responsibilities to provide compliant equipment. OSHA governs the relationship between you and your employees. This means you must do your due diligence to ensure that the equipment you provide meets the OSHA requirements. Employers are required under OSHA to use hoists tested by both a nationally recognized testing laboratory and a qualified testing laboratory, depending on which code section applies. Underwriters Laboratory (UL) is one of three nationally recognized testing laboratories. The signs of a successful system are that the workers are as safe as possible and the project is being completed on schedule, on budget and without excessive risk.
