Mast climbing work platforms are becoming more and more common on U.S. construction sites. Mast climbers have a power-driven work platform that climbs a vertical tower, allowing them to reach much higher and carry greater loads than traditional scaffolds. The goal of this program, funded by the Job-Site Safety Institute, is to improve worker safety while using mast climbing work platforms.
