Aerial Lift Safety Program
Spread the love

Aerial lifts are commonly used in construction, inspection, athletic events, and repair services to lift University employees to an elevated work position. Proper operation and use of aerial lifts can make the completion of tasks at elevation, safer and more efficient. However, unsafe use, operation, and aerial lift work practices can result in serious injury. This program has been developed due to the hazards associated with improper use and the University’s concern for the safety of individuals in and around this type of equipment. In addition, this program outlines general, operating, maintenance, inspection, and training requirements governing safe aerial lift use at the University.

Policy

Departments using aerial lifts must ensure that supervisors and operators comply with all aspects of this safety program. All university employees must successfully complete a training program, and receive certification prior to the operation of any aerial lift. Contractors operating aerial lifts on university projects are expected to meet or exceed the requirements found in this program and comply with all applicable statutes and regulations governing the use of powered industrial trucks as listed in Section 3.0 of this document.
