Dozer Access Platform
SafeSmart’s client was operating both D10 and D11 Caterpillar dozers, on which scheduled maintenance was required. The challenge for doing this safely and efficiently was of course that plant equipment like this features irregularly-shaped surfaces; surfaces where personnel need to stand to access engines, windows and the like during maintenance. The fall and injury risks are high.
For this client, SafeSmart designed and manufactured—in-house—a customized portable staircase, loosely based on the standard line Super Maintenance Platform (SMP), for wheel up to the side-mounted engine bay door, saving contractors from standing on the dozers’ tracks.
In addition to the SMP’s design, this platform’s castors roll under the dozers’ side-protruding areas for a snug fit against the machine, with no gaps to fall through.
SafeSmart can design any steps, stairs or platforms to help safely and quickly access any plant equipment.
