5 things to consider when choosing an access platform for food industry

  1. Are operators properly IPAF trained and have the correct licence?
  2. Does the application require you to lift vertically or to reach at an angle, perhaps to gain access over an obstacle?
  3. Will you be working indoors, outside or both?
  4. Will you be working on smooth, flat surfaces or uneven ground?
