OSHA Compliant Power Washing Equipment
Elevated Work Platforms
Chicagoland Power Washing is educated, experienced, and equipped to work with swing stages, aerial lifts, and temporary tower scaffolding. There is no structure or substrate we can’t access. Whether your building is forty stories high, has a pedestrian bridge over a retention pond, or the ceiling above very important manufacturing equipment needs work, Chicagoland Pressure Washing can engineer the proper aerial system to handle it safely.
A swing-stage is an elevated work platform that is supported by suspension lines. Swing stages are used primarily on high-rise buildings. Safety beams and canter weights are used to suspend our scaffold from the roof, and the platform is then raised and lowered with automatic hoisting equipment. We require our technicians to be trained and licensed in this capacity long before the City of Chicago required such certification by law. This method is extremely safe for the painters, as well as the integrity of structure.
Aerial lifts may have articulated swing arms, telescoping elevation devices, and movable bases. These options on aerial lifts enable technicians to reach nearly any part of a building. When positioning the lifts, we lay down a (1″) one-inch thick plywood path to protect any landscaping from the weight of the equipment.
Temporary tower scaffolding structures
Certain situations do not allow aerial lifts for elevated work. This may be because aerial lists would obstruct or create architectural inaccessibility. For these situations, we can also erect temporary tower scaffolding structures. These structures are installed for large indoor and outdoor projects where. We require an OSHA-certified foreman to be present for this type of work.
Safety and OSHA Compliance
Safety and OSHA compliance is of paramount concern to Chicagoland Pressure Washing. All of our painters are trained and certified in proper maintenance and operation of elevated work platforms. Feel free to contact our office to request a copy of the certification for any of our painters dedicated to your project.
