Mobile Elevated Work Platforms

Mobile Elevated Work Platforms

Not everything we have to work on is within our reach. There are times we need a little help. Sometimes ladders are chosen, other times fixed scaffolds, and still other times mobile equipment like aerial lifts (also referred to as articulating boom/bucket lifts) and scissor lifts. Working safely with this last category will be the focus of this course. Safety is our primary concern when using any equipment to access work at heights. When we are above the ground, falls can occur if we are not careful. Statistics consistently show that falls from heights are among the leading causes of workplace fatalities. Many other fatalities are caused by electrocution and contact with overhead machinery. Investigations of these incidents indicate that being careful at heights is more than just common sense. Operating mobile equipment at high elevations can be risky and you need good habits and good information to make good decisions.
