Aerial platform - Aerial platform
The lifting platform is a mobile machine equipped with a working platform and a lifting system. It is used to work at height and to carry people and not goods.
There are different types of aerial work platforms: scissor lift, articulated boom lift, vertical mast lift and telescopic aerial work platform. A nacelle can be self-propelled, on a carrier (bucket truck), towable, on crawlers, or spider for sloping or difficult terrain. The nacelles are powered by a diesel or electric motor.
The cradle was designed in the USA with the aim of making work at height previously carried out on scaffolding safer. It was John L. Grove, who witnessed an accident on the Hoover Dam, who invented it, before founding with friends a new company called JLG which marketed the first nacelle in 1970.

A second-hand platform for your sites
A nacelle is an essential worksite tool on a site where work at height takes place.
It is intended for lifting people to the exclusion of any other type of load. It allows you to lift a weight of around 200 kg (two workers and their tools) in complete safety. Its ease of use and maneuverability make this tool essential on a construction site. It consists of a work platform and a lifting system.
The nacelle is intended for specific work, which can sometimes be grouped together for a short period if the site is well optimized. In this context, the rental of a boom lift is an option to consider, which considerably reduces the costs of the site.
Respect for safety: essential
There is only one watchword to keep in mind when choosing your second-hand manual aerial work platform: safety. Indeed, a nacelle is intended to raise a worker up to sometimes 72 meters; it is therefore necessary to check that the used platform is perfectly up to standards and that the site manager can confidently place orders.
Certainly, compared to a ladder or even a scaffolding, the lifting platform allows work to be carried out more safely. However, the standards to be observed are particularly strict.
It is therefore necessary to respect certain points when using it on your site:
Entrust the control of the platform to an experienced worker, who has undergone specific training. Your platform operator should ideally hold a CACES486 (this training is not mandatory but is strongly recommended)
When you take delivery of your used platform, you must also collect three documents: the user manual for the platform, the six-month periodic inspection report, and the maintenance log.
Be careful to carry out the usual checks on your site: indoors, watch out for the ceiling and the floor, outdoors, be particularly careful of high voltage lines.
