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
