Fall Prevention Safety

Fall Prevention

How do we prevent falls from aerial lifts?

What to Do While Operating an Aerial Lift:

  • Ensure that access gates or openings are closed
  • Stand firmly on the floor of the bucket or lift platform
  • Do not climb on or lean over guardrails or handrails
  • Do not use planks, ladders, or other devices as a working position
  • Use a full-body harness with a lanyard attached to the boom or bucket
  • Do not belt-off to adjacent structures or poles while in the bucket
