Work Cage

Last updated: June 19, 2020

What Does Work Cage Mean?

A work cage is a type of scaffolding that allows a worker to reach difficult places while keeping the worker safe. A work cage is not typically used in scaffolding structures that are built from the ground up, but in suspension scaffolding applications suspended far above the ground.


Corrosionpedia Explains Work Cage

A work cage is usually large enough for the worker to stand up. A work cage has guardrails around the entire platform so that the worker will be less likely to fall out. Most work cages have other safety features to help ensure that the worker using the scaffolding system will not be injured.

Work cages are used for a variety of jobs that require suspended scaffolding, such as window cleaning, maintenance, construction, painting and inspection.
