What is considered a crane suspended material basket?
OSHA requires that personnel be transported on a separate platform than work materials. A material basket is a crane-mounted basket that is solely used for hauling work materials. OSHA regulations specifically state that:
No person shall be allowed to ride on material hoists except for the purposes of inspection and maintenance.
How do I know if my crane suspended material basket is safe?
OSHA regulations do NOT dictate the design of material-only crane suspended platforms. However, our material-only platforms are still created with the highest standards for practicality and safety.
We also provide each of our crane suspended baskets with a unique Test Weight system that enables you to quickly and efficiently test your platform before use.
