    Elevating work platforms are used for work in places that are not easily accessible, and with their design and subsequently appropriate design craftsmanship they ensure safe work in construction and assembly operations, inspections of street lighting and many other activities. The mobile elevating work platforms that are manufactured today, with their level of construction, quality of workmanship and ever-improving built-in safety features, create safer working conditions at heights and thus a quieter and safer working environment not only for the workers themselves but also for their employers. The paper analyzes the dangers and threats when working with platforms and the requirements for operators working with this equipment. Subsequently, risks are identified using the risk-assessment methods in the standards TNI ISO / TR 14121-2 Safety of Machinery. Risk assessment. Part 2: Practical guidance and examples of methods. In the conclusion is a proposal of corrective measures that can improve safety when working with elevating work platforms.
