mobile safety step and access platformThe Workplace Depot manufactures safety steps and access platforms at a factory in Leicester. We offer an extensive range of mobile safety steps and access platforms and also welcome bespoke orders – additional features may include a larger platform, a safety gate and different types of wheels. We can also make them as tall as you like and in any RAL colour – The RAL colours also applies to our Fetra trucks and trolleys.

Safety Steps Load Testing

In February 2014 we had our safety steps and access platforms load tested by Pegasus Mechanical Lifting, a UK specialist lifting equipment testing & design company who are members of the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA). They were tested to a maximum load of 150 KG which was evenly distributed on the platform applied using calibrated test weights. The safety step models that were tested were 58 Series Mobile Safety Steps (BC5801), 35 Series Mobile Safety Steps (BC35) and the Easy action steps (BC5931 & BC5941).

High Standards

The access platforms (BC2133 and BC3333/30) were load tested to a maximum load of 300kg evenly distributed on the platform and applied using calibrated test weights and no defects were found.

We are not aware that any other UK manufacturer of mobile safety steps and platforms tests to these vigorous standards.
