Portable OSHA and IBC Stairs and Landings

Centerspan locally manufactures and installs portable OSHA and IBC stairs and landings. From temporary portable entrance stairs for commercial trailers; to field platform applications – Centerspan has the solution.

Safe and reliable multi-floor access is very important. For example, workers need access to elevated doorways on the job site. Likewise, the general public needs to safely travel multiple levels. Centerspan can custom manufacture solutions for both situations that meet and exceed regulations.

The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) tightly regulates rules and conditions for commercial facilities whereby the general public does not have access. For example, this includes commercial steps, stairways, and landings used on construction sites. Moreover, these conditions only apply to those workers and personnel legitimately operating within the site in question.

The regulations concerning this equipment are not as stringent as the International Building Code (IBC) regulations. The IBC governs public stairways and landings. For example, commercial and public facilities that are accessed and utilized by the general public are regulated by the IBC.
