OSHA Aerial Lift Safety Training
An aerial lift or elevated working platform is a mechanical device used to provide temporary access for people and equipment to inaccessible areas resulting from height. These can include:
- Work platforms
- Scissor lifts
- Telescopic booms
- Articulating booms
- Truck mounted
- Trailer mounted
Aerial lifts are much more flexibility and mobile and have been replacing more traditional methods of raising employees to work such as ladders and scaffolding. These lifts are typically made of metal or fiberglass reinforced plastic and can be powered or manually operated, and are considered to be aerial lifts whether or not they can rotate around a primarily vertical axis. Each year in the U.S. thousands of workers are injured or killed in accidents involving aerial lifts that could have been prevented with proper training.
BEB’s Material Handling Safety Division provides OSHA recommended, on-site training aimed to help employers and employees to recognize and most importantly avoid safety hazards they may encounter when they use aerial lifts.
