An aerial lift is any vehicle-mounted device used to elevate personnel. Aerial lifts have replaced ladders and scaffolding on many job sites due to their mobility and flexibility. They can be made of metal, fiberglass-reinforced plastic, or other materials. They can also be powered or manually operated.
Many workers are killed or injured on aerial lifts every year. Learn about the hazards to be aware of, the necessary training needed, and how to be safe before and while operating the aerial lift.
