  • This standard applies to Mast Climbing Work Platforms that areprimarily used to position personnel, along with their necessarytools and materials, to perform their work. (See Figures 1 and 2 onthe following pages for typical examples of equipment covered.)Platforms may be adjustable by manual or powered means.

    This standard is applicable to work platforms which are elevatedby a drive system and guided by and move along their supportingmasts, where the mast may or may not require lateral restraint fromseparate supporting structures.

    This standard is applicable to any combination of the followingalternatives:
