Like any piece of equipment you rely on, your aerial lifts require regular inspections, and regularly.
Aerial lifts also have their own set of unique safety requirements, and let’s start this review here.
OSHA defines an aerial lift, simply, as a vehicle used to lift someone in the air. We’re paraphrasing here, but you know what an aerial lift is.
Some of the hazards include brushes with gravity for both the operator and any objects the lift may be handling; the high center of gravity causing the vehicle to tip over; electrocutions caused by not observing overhead electrical lines; and contact with the ceiling.
