  • Safe Work Practices Cont.

    • Employees shall always stand firmly on the floor of the basket.

      • Do not stand, sit or climb on edge of the basket or guard rails.

      • Do not use planks, ladders, or other devices for a work position.

  • Two Major Safety Hazards:

    • Electrocution Hazards - Caused by operating close to power lines.

      • It is easy to accidentally contact energized power lines.

      • This machine is not electrically insulated and will not provide protection from contact with electrical current.

      • If lift comes in contact with energized lines, personnel on the ground or in the platform must not touch or operate the machine until energized power lines are shut off.

      • Do not operate the machine during lighting or storms.

  • Two Major Safety Hazards Cont.

    • Fall Hazards - Caused by improper operation and/or improper set up.

      • Fall hazard due to the potential for being bounced out of lift or from climbing out of the basket.

      • Over reaching

      • Swinging under over hanging limbs, structures or lines.

      • Stumbling over tools inside the basket.
