Abstract

Most ground-supported working platforms perform well; they are critical for plant stability, and safety is a vital issue. However, overturning of rigs has occurred more frequently than it should. As part of a drive to improve practices related to the use of piling and associated specialist plant, the Federation of Piling Specialists instigated preparation of this guide. The guide is intended to promote safety in the design, specification, installation, operation, maintenance and repair of working platforms. A secondary objective is that safety should be achieved without unnecessary or excessive expenditure. The guide highlights important issues in site assessment, design, installation and maintenance of working platforms. Design calculations are given, together with worked examples for different subgrade properties. 52 pages
