Where Can You Use an Aerial Lift?
Aerial lifts can be used in a variety of settings and industries but are typically used on building sites and for facility maintenance. They lift the operator, either by scissor, vertical, or boom masts, to the height level of their work that is not obtainable by more conventional means, such as using a ladder. Aerial lifts also allow the benefit of a stable, solid platform for the operator to work from.
Considerations When Using an Aerial Lift
While aerial lifts can be a versatile and helpful piece of equipment in a variety of work environments, there are considerations to keep in mind to keep both the operator safe and to avoid damage to your equipment.
There needs to be adequate clearance above, below and around the lift and bucket to avoid getting stuck or crushing accidents. This will also reduce the risk of objects striking anyone that is in the basket.
Pay Attention to Power Lines
Just as it’s important to check for clearance, it’s equally important to survey your work area for any power lines that may be in the immediate area or will need to be maneuvered around either by the lift or the basket. OSHA recommends at least a 10-foot clearance from the nearest overhead line in order to reduce the risk for electrocution.
This should also apply to all other overhead objects, such as wiring, pipes, ducts, trees or other equipment.
