OSHA regulates industrial walking surfaces, such as interior and exterior stairs around machinery, tanks and other equipment, and stairways leading to or from platforms, pits and other floors. When your job site requires a code-compliant access system to ensure the safety of your workforce, REDD Team can help.
We are a division of Sapa Extrusions North America, and are the original aluminum access solutions company. REDD Team has proudly manufactured high-quality aluminum stairs, walkways, platforms, ramps and pedestrian bridges in the U.S.A. for more than 25 years. We have the engineering expertise to ensure the best design and correct fit for your application.
Job Site Injury Statistics
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are about 150,000 construction site injuries each year. And nearly 4,000 workers are killed. Slips and falls make up the majority of the incidents.
The OSHA regulations covering stairways generally depend on how and when the stairs are used. There are rules for stairs used during construction and stairs used temporarily during construction, as well as rules governing stair rails and handrails.
Obviously, structural integrity is a significant safety factor. At REDD Team, we employ the highest standards of engineering and fabrication processes to ensure that our aluminum access products meet or exceed the OSHA 1910.24 safety standards.
REDD Team OSHA-Compliant Stairs
Whether you need a single set of stairs or multi-level stair towers, we can customize them with a variety of heights and angles. This will depend on how you intend to use them, the size of work platform needed, and whether you will want to move and reconfigure them to adapt to changing production processes. Our high-quality products include:
- Dura-Grip OSHA Stairs – Ideal for field offices, construction trailers and modular buildings, this aluminum stair weighs between 125 and 155 pounds and can be assembled in less than 10 minutes. We offer 2, 3 and 4 step versions ranging from 25 ½ inches to 35 inches with open risers. They have a 300 pound load rating, and the landing width is 40” x 60” with 32” tread. For maximum safety in any environment, the stairs are slip-resistant, have a self-draining interlocking aluminum deck, and feature independently adjustable legs.
- Flex-Step OSHA Stairs – This lighter-weight all-aluminum adjustable stair weighs only 120 pounds, but is designed to handle a concentrated load of 300 pounds. The threshold is 28” or 35” and features field-reversible handing. Hand and guard rails are designed for 200 pounds of force applied at any point along the top of the rail. It also features a slip-resistant and self-draining deck, and customers can opt for a Grip Strut surface. This stair works exceptionally well in areas where mud, ice, snow, grease, oil or detergents create slippery or hazardous conditions.
- OSHA Crossover Stairs – When you need to meet the OSHA requirements for crossing walking path obstructions, our Crossover Stairs can be quickly assembled on-site and adjusted for threshold and other configurations. The stairs and landing will handle a 100psf live load and a concentrated load of 300 pounds. Along with a durable slip-resistant and self-draining deck, the stairs and railings are non-corrosive and non-combustible.
