From ground level, a worker ascends an angled ladder with nonslip treads that is located on one end of the catwalk. Once on the catwalk deck, the operator must move to the middle of the catwalk to access the controls that allow him to move the platform along the length of the pit. Situated near the controls are safety harness attachment points. Once the catwalk has been moved to the desired position along the length of the pit, the operator can step onto one of the smaller vertical platforms and lower themselves down to the level of the steel plates. Hand controls to raise and lower the platform are located on the moving platform along with an emergency stop button. Located at floor level near the access ladder is an additional emergency stop button and OSHA compliant main disconnect and lock-out.
