About This Site

This website was created in the aftermath of the tragic accident that took the life of University of Notre Dame student videographer Declan Sullivan in October 2010. Its aim is to help high schools, colleges and university administrators understand key considerations for aerial lift safety. It is not meant to be used as a form of training for aerial lift usage. The best source of information on how to operate an aerial lift is always the model’s owner manual. That manual, coupled with ANSI standards, must be consulted before operating any lift.
