Aerial Lift Platforms

Aerial lifts are versatile and, if operated by a trained and qualified person, safe to use. Like most equipment they make the job easier; however, many workers are injured or killed on aerial lifts each year while being caught between the guardrail and another object such as a steel beam or falling from the platform. And, workers on the ground have been struck and killed by a falling objects from aerial lifts.

  • Any combination of the above

  • When and how to perform inspections
