Aerial Lift Safety Common Questions and Answers

Does OSHA require aerial lift certification?

Yes. Aerial lift certification ensures a worker is allowed to operate a boom lift, scissor lift, or any other type of aerial lift based on OSHA specifications. Once a worker is certified to hold an aerial lift license, their certification lasts for three years.

What happens if I let my certification expire?

If an aerial lift operator doesn’t renew their certification, he or she cannot legally operate an aerial lift. If the worker continues to operate an aerial lift after his or her certificate expires, the risks are significant for both the worker and their employer.

What does OSHA consider to be aerial lifts?

OSHA defined an aerial lift as any vehicle-mounted device used to elevate personnel, including. This includes Extendable Boom Platforms, Aerial Ladders, Articulated Boom Platforms, Vertical Towers, and any combination of the aforementioned.

Does OSHA require aerial lift training?

Yes. In fact, OSHA requires aerial lift training and aerial lift retraining. Retraining is done if any of the following conditions occur: an accident during aerial lift use, workplace hazards involving an aerial lift are discovered, and a different type of aerial lift is used. Employers are also required to retrain workers who they observe operating an aerial lift improperly.

What is the OSHA standard for scissor lifts?

Here are the common OSHA standards for scissor lifts are: 21 – Safety Training and Education

What are some problems of using a boom lift?

It doesn’t happen often, but it is possible for a boom lift to tip over. Make sure the area around the lift is clear so no one gets hurt if the structure tips over. Make sure you hire employees who are trained. Hiring employees who are not properly trained to operate boom lifts and who have not maintained relevant safety certifications and knowledge can be a problem for the operator, the employer, and workers on the project site. Falling out of the lift is sometimes a problem. This is why workers in a boom lift must wear a harness with the lanyard fully secured to the bucket.

Can a boom lift collapse?

When a boom lift is extended very high, the wind can be a big concern. Strong winds can knock a boom lift completely over. Avoid using boom lifts in extreme wind or other adverse weather to avoid the risk of a boom lift potentially falling over.

Do you need to be certified to use a scissor lift?

OSHA requirements make it illegal for any person to work with, on or around scissor lifts unless he or she has been properly trained and certified.

How long does an aerial lift certification last?

Once an operator is certified to hold an aerial lift license, their certification lasts 3-years and should be renewed prior to expiration.
