2. Objectives  Operator Training Requirements  Before Operation Inspection  Safety Operations of a Lift  Aerial Lift Requirements  Scissors Lift Requirements  Maintenance Requirements 2PPT-119-01

3. Aerial Lift Deaths 3PPT-119-01 Struck by/against Caught in/between Collapses/tipovers Falls Electrocutions 9% 5% 7% 30% 17% 44% 26% 11% 43% Scissor lifts = 64 deaths Boom-supported lifts = 144 deaths #Data for scissor lifts do not meet Bureau of Labor Statistics publication criteria Source: U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data % of Deaths #

4. Aerial Lifts Falls  1/5 of deaths involved ejections, after being struck by object  Cause of fall unknown in 3/5 of deaths  Other causes included removal of chains, standing on or leaning over railings 4PPT-119-01

5. Aerial Lifts Tip-overs  Caused almost 1/3 of scissor lift deaths  Mostly while elevated over 15 feet  1/4 of tip-overs occurred where lift hit a hole or curb while moving Electrocutions  1/2 involved overhead power lines 5PPT-119-01

6. Operator Training Training must be done by a qualified person experienced with the particular lift model. Training must include:  Nature of electrical, fall, tip-over, and other hazards involved in operating lift  Precautions for dealing with hazards 6PPT-119-01

7. Operator Training • Rated load capacity for the lift (including workers, tools, materials, bucket liner, etc.) • Manufacturer requirements, as outlined in operator manual • Demonstration of skill and knowledge in actual operation of the aerial lift 7PPT-119-01

8. Qualified Person OSHA 1926.450(b) A qualified person .…by extensive knowledge, training, and experience can….solve….problems related to the subject matter…. 8PPT-119-01

9. Before Operating a Lift  Do not modify aerial lift without written permission  Check safety devices, operating controls before each use 9PPT-119-01

10. Before Operating a Lift Check area in which aerial lift will be used for:  Level surface (Do not exceed manufacturer slope recommendations)  Holes, drop-offs, bumps, debris, etc.  Overhead obstructions and overhead power lines  Stable surface  Other hazards Set outriggers, brakes, wheel chocks 10PPT-119-01

11. Aerial Lifts  Do not raise platform on uneven or soft surfaces  Do not raise platform in windy or gusty conditions  Do not travel to job location with lift in elevated position  Do not use lift with railing removed 11PPT-119-01

12. Aerial Lifts  Do not stand on railing to reach work area rather than repositioning the lift  Do not use near power lines, junction boxes, etc.  Do not overload  Do not use near moving vehicles  Do not override safety devices 12PPT-119-01

13. Aerial Lifts • Do not use ladder or other device to increase size or working height • Do not use with damaged wheels or tires 13PPT-119-01

14. Aerial Lifts Do List  Read and understand ALL caution and danger warnings and operating manuals  Perform daily maintenance inspection  Replace all worn or damaged parts  Fasten entry gate/chin/bar  Use work platform only on hard level surfaces 14PPT-119-01

15. Aerial Lifts Inspect the following daily:  Operating and emergency controls  Safety devices  Personal protective devices  Tires and wheels  Air, hydraulic and fuel system for leaks  Look for loose or missing parts 15PPT-119-01

16. Aerial Lifts Inspect the following daily: o Cable and wiring harness o Guardrail system o Hydraulic reservoir level o Coolant level Taking an extra minute or two may prevent you from a serious injury 16PPT-119-01

17. Fall Protection  Scissors Lifts (Fall Protection) Fall protection is not necessary or required unless the railing has been removed.  Articulating & telescoping boom lift. Fall protection is required due to potential for being bounced out of lift or from climbing out basket. 17PPT-119-01

18. Preventing Tip-Over  Do not exceed manufacturer rated load capacity limits  Do not travel to job location with lift in elevated position.  Set up proper work zone protection when working near traffic  Avoid excessive horizontal forces when working on elevated scissor lifts 18PPT-119-01

19. Preventing Tip-Over Positioning of lifts  Do not drive near drop-offs or holes.  Do not raise platform on uneven or soft surfaces.  Do not drive onto uneven or soft surfaces when elevated.  Do not raise platform on slope or drive onto slope when elevated.  Do not raise platform in windy or gusty conditions. 19PPT-119-01

20. Aerial Baskets Safe Setup • Solid footing for wheels and outriggers is crucial • Wheels and outriggers blocked and/or cribbed as necessary • Awareness of and clearance from overhead electrical hazards • Warm-up period followed by safe test of hydraulic system 20PPT-119-01

21. Aerial Baskets Safe Setup  Lanyard and safety belts worn by ALL in basket  Barricades necessary to separate unit from ground traffic 21PPT-119-01

22. Aerial Baskets • All operators must be trained • No basket riding allowed when truck is moving • Operator’s feet always must be on basket floor • Lanyard and safety belt must restrict operator movement within basket 22PPT-119-01

23. Aerial Baskets • Load limits of boom & basket posted and never exceeded • Boom lowered and basket cradled before truck movement • No overreaching from basket 23PPT-119-01

24. Fall Protection • Fall protection is required (full body harness with lanyard or body belt with 2-foot lanyard as restraint device) • Fall arrest systems (harness plus lanyard to stop a fall)  Can tip over some boom lifts and scissor lifts due to fall stopping force 24PPT-119-01

25. Fall Protection • Fall restraint systems intended to prevent falls are preferred e.g. Full body harness plus lanyard designed for size of lift platform • Always close entrance chains or doors • Stand on floor of bucket or lift platform  Do not climb on or lean over guardrails 25PPT-119-01

26. Preventing Electrocutions  Non-electrical workers must stay at least 10 feet away from overhead power lines.  Electrical workers must de-energize/insulate power lines or use proper PPE/equipment.  Use insulated buckets near overhead power lines  Regularly check insulation on buckets 26PPT-119-01
