Abstract: Embodiments described herein include an expansion assembly for a scaffold having a first support member, the first support member having a connector bar, the first support member including a hook flange, the hook flange projecting laterally from the connector bar, a hook, the hook extending from the hook flange, where the hook is spaced apart from the connector bar, a support bracket, the support bracket extending from a support bracket flange, where the support bracket is spaced apart from the connector, and a securing bracket.
Abstract: An apparatus that provides selectively deployable worker access with fall protection to at least a portion of the top of a container disposed above the ground. A gangway and its associated fall protection cage are selectively deployable from an elevated platform over the top of the container. The gangway and its associated cage are slidably connected to the platform via a track carried along the side of the platform.

Abstract: A construction apparatus for use within an elevator hoistway is provided. The construction apparatus includes span members, each span member having a first end, a second end and a length. Sill attachments are connected to the first end of the span members. The sill attachments are configured to rotate about and seat against a building sill. A support member connected to the second end of the span members. The support members are configured to seat against a second side of the elevator hoistway. The length of the span members is longer than a horizontal distance from the building sill to the second side of the elevator hoistway such that the span members rest in an inclined orientation with respect to a substantially horizontal axis. One or more platforms is supported by one or more forms, the platforms arranged such as to provide a working platform within the elevator hoistway.
Abstract: The design is for a sawhorse with a collapsible support platform to support material that is being cut-off or worked on. The support platform keeps the material that is being cut from falling and/or splintering at the end of the cut and reduces or eliminates the need for an addition person to support the portion of the material being cut-off or for the person doing the cutting to attempt to hold the material being cut-off with one hand while cutting with the other and creating an unsafe condition. The sawhorse with support platform does not necessarily eliminate the need for a second sawhorse to support the opposite end of the material being cut or worked on. The sawhorse can be provided with the platform on both sides to provide additional cutting or material support surface which may then eliminate the need for a second sawhorse. Additionally the cutting support platform can be provided as a separate accessory that can be mounted to various manufactures' available sawhorses.
Abstract: This maintenance trolley (17) for the air intake (9) of the nacelle of an aircraft turbojet engine is notable in that it comprises a base (19) and a platform (23) cantilever-mounted on this base (19) and designed to enter said air intake (9) without contact therewith.

Abstract: A scaffolding support platform for use with a scaffolding system including a fabricated end frame including a floor having a flat surface adapted to support a worker and a support frame including a base for supporting the floor, a plurality of anchors to releasably attach the support frame to a fabricated end frame and a plurality of support members extending between the base and at least one anchor.
Abstract: This invention contemplates a combination and method involving mounting specially designed plates and/or mounting apparatus against and on the standard vertical column used in construction of office structures or other structures including bridges. The plates have a clamping mechanism designed to fit around or on the vertical column. A lower and upper plate are mounted. The plates have a protrusions onto which are mounted a bracket with holes fitting on the protrusions. The bracket is secured with a cotter pin. The brackets project outside the eventual skin of a building and deck planks or pics can be mounted on the brackets. The mobile outrigger scaffolding system allows workmen to safely walk and work on the deck planks to perform work on a floor-by-floor basis. The system can be dissembled quickly and moved to another part of the same floor, to a new floor, and can be used around the outside corner of a structure or from an overhang or from a horizontal beam.
Abstract: A scaffold mountable hoist platform for conveying of materials to different levels of a scaffold. The scaffold mountable hoist platform includes a frame having a rear frame member, a deck support member. The deck support member is orthogonally extending from the rear frame member is for supporting a deck. A plurality of rear vertical guides are positioned proximate the frame. A plurality of stanchion guide assemblies are mounted to the frame such that the stanchion guide assemblies are adapted for releasably engaging the stanchions. Each of the stanchion guide assemblies have a bearing plate and a plurality of bearings. The bearing plate has a plurality of apertures therethrough. The bearings are coupled to the bearing plate such that the bearings extend through the apertures for rollably engaging the stanchions. A lifting assembly is coupled to the frame for raising and lowering the frame along the stanchions of the scaffold.
