The RIGHT Setup for aerial lift safety.

Each and every time you use an aerial, scissor or boom lift, it is important to be certain that it is set up properly and safely. Anyone operating the lift, as well as all designated Safety Contacts at your school, should be thoroughly trained in how to set up the lift properly. Always refer to the owner’s manual for your lift, and other materials provided by the lift manufacturer and national safety organizations.

Some things to remember when setting up your lift:

  • Thoroughly inspect the lift prior to every use.

  • Set the lift in the right location.

  • Operate the lift sensibly.

These are some of the main considerations when determining the RIGHT Setup for your aerial lift. For more information, please refer to your lift’s operating manual of responsibilities which every user must acquire.
