Load lifting platforms are steel construction bodies which are designed for material handling purposes and designed for heavy working conditions. There are standing hydraulic lifting devices to raise the platform to a desired level. There are also manual controllable download features. Although all of its various models have overload safety valves to protect both the operator and the platform, load lifting platforms as a result, it is used in heavy duty and there is always a danger.

Hydraulic load platform, low type cargo platform, scissor lift tandem, There are a wide variety of lifting platforms available for use, such as the U-type platform. In addition, platform dimensions, carrying capacities and lifting capacities may vary.

Annex 3 Maintenance, Repair and Periodic Inspection Issues in the Annex of the Regulation on Health and Safety in the Use of Work Equipment issued by the Ministry of Labor and Social Security, Lifting and forwarding tools group. As with all equipment in this group, load lifting platforms must be able to safely lift and hold at least an 1,25 solid weight of the declared load and have a durable braking system.

Inspections and controls to be performed in accordance with the provisions of the Regulation must be carried out by authorized persons. They are mechanical engineers, machine technicians or high technicians. Stability tests may also be performed if deemed necessary for load lifting platforms. These tests are based on the criteria shown in the relevant standards.

If inspection and control operations are to be carried out by non-destructive testing methods, these operations should only be carried out by engineers, technicians or technicians who have been trained in accordance with the EN Qualification and certification of NDT personnel ”.

Implementing Regulation on Health and Safety Conditions in the Use of Work Equipmentprovided that the lifting standards have to be checked at least once a year if no other period is specified in the relevant standards.

The Regulation also specifies the standards to be considered during these checks as follows:

  • TS 10116
  • TS EN 280
  • TS EN 818-6 + A1
  • TS EN 1495 + A2
  • TS EN 1709
