    1. Bucket Truck (Truck With Cherry Picker)

    3. BUCKET TRUCK Components: Bucket Boom Truck

    4. TYPES OF AERIAL DEVICE Articulated boom aerial devices Extendible boom aerial devices

    5. TYPES OF AERIAL DEVICE Hybrid aerial devices which are essentially articulated aerial devices with extendible booms

    6. HISTORY OF CHERRY PICKER Cherry pickers were originally designed for use in orchards where they are still heavily used. It lets the picker pick fruit high in a tree with relative ease.

    7. BUCKET TRUCK OSHA 1926.550(a): The minimum horizontal clearance between the cherry picker and the electric cable should be 10 feet plus 1 foot for every 30 kV over 50kV. The minimum vertical clearance between the cherry picker and live electric wire: 4 feet if less than 50 kV 10 feet if between 50 kV and 345 kV 16 feet if between 346 kV and 750 kV

    8. NATURE OF INJURIES The most commonly reported serious accidents: Lift overturns Fall from lifts Contacting power lines Boom collapse

    9. NATURE OF INJURIES

    10. FATALITY WITH BUCKET TRUCK An employee was using a bucket truck and had been given the task of painting a metal utility pole with a spray gun. For some reason, he leaned back in the bucket and the back of his neck came in contact with a 7960 volt bare wire. The employee was knocked out of the bucket and into the bed of the personnel hoist truck

    11. FATALITY WITH BUCKET TRUCK Two employees fell out of a "cherry picker" when the basket they were in was struck by a passing tractor trailer. Both employees were wearing personal fall arrest equipment but were not tied off to the basket. One employee was fatally injured when he fell 13 feet to the concrete surface.

    12. FATALITY WITH BUCKET TRUCK An employee was riding on the left side of a bucket truck and fell off. He was run over by both left wheels and died. An ironworker struck by overhead beam while booming basket lift backwards resulting in asphyxia and death.

    13. SAFE USE OF BUCKET TRUCK 1. Personal Protective Equipment: Machine operator must wear hardhat, pants, shirt with 3 inch sleeves, gloves, safety harness, and hearing protection Always keep the fall protection device fastened and comfortably snug

    14. SAFE USE OF BUCKET TRUCK 2. Beginning Project Consideration: Operator must know what tasks he/she is to perform while using the equipment on the project 3. Worker Credentials: Worker must be trained to operate cherry picker

    15. SAFE USE OF BUCKET TRUCK 4. Before Getting on Machine: Walk around cherry picker and visually inspect tires, boom, and basket for complications. Survey the area around equipment for uneven ground surface. Check for oil or hydraulic fluid leaks. Look for people behind, in front, or under the machine

    16. SAFE USE OF BUCKET TRUCK Safe Entry: Make sure area around the equipment is clear. Lower basket and inspect railings. Open railing gate and enter the basket.

    17. SAFE USE OF BUCKET TRUCK 6. Operating Safety: When operating stay aware of surroundings. Maintain specified distance from electrical lines and apparatus as per OSHA safety precautions. Do not operate the aerial device during electrical storms. Make sure the safety harness is connected.

    18. SAFE USE OF BUCKET TRUCK Never operate heavy machinery alone Never pass platforms between power lines, even with insulated machines. Before lifting a load, see the manufacturers manual or load chart affixed to the boom for the lifting capacity of the machine with the boom in various position. Dont push vehicle beyond its capabilities.

    19. SAFE USE OF BUCKET TRUCK 7. Safe Exit: Make sure area below the equipment is clear. Lower basket and inspect railings. Open railing gate and exit the basket.

    20. SAFE USE OF BUCKET TRUCK 8. Secure Equipment Not In Use: Lower cherry picker Park safely in designated area Imply emergency brakes Lock machine and remove keys Attach a DO NOT OPERATE tag or similar warning tag to the starter switch or steering controls before performing maintenance on the machine
