New rules regarding the use of work trays and work platforms.
Posted: 30 June 2020
From 1 July 2020 it is only exceptionally permitted to perform work from a work platform or work platform, which is hoisted by a crane. The purpose of the change is to reduce the unlawful use of work trays on hoists. The employer is obliged to substantiate in the preparatory phase whether the use of a work platform or work platform is fair.
Subsequently, the substantiation is presented to a higher certified safety expert and submitted to the Inspectorate SZW after approval. This must be done at least 2 days before the start of work via www.inspectieszw.nl/melden
The government has written a guideline working with a work platform or work platform to support the employer step-by-step whether the use of a work platform is justified. The guideline for working with a work platform can be found on the Health and Safety portal of the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment.
