RollaStep Mobile Platform used as fall protection for loading pipes on a flatbed trailer

RollaStep Mobile Platform used as fall protection for loading pipes on a flatbed trailer.

Most flatbed trucks have a deck height ranging from 52 to 60 inches, with loads potentially reaching up to 13 feet 6 inches. Despite these heights, the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) require fall protection for heights exceeding 48 inches. This regulation means that all operators should use fall protection equipment to comply with safety codes when securing loads on flatbed trucks, reducing the risk of falls and improving safety during flatbed loading operations.
