Boom lifts, also known as bucket trucks or cherry pickers, are widely used in construction and general industry. Even though boom lifts are generally safer than ladders, more than 26 workers are killed every year in accidents. The most common accidents and fatalities related to boom lifts are electrocution and falls.
To protect workers, OSHA has established a series of regulations governing the use of lifts (1926.451, 1926.452, 1926.453, and 1926.454.) These OSHA safety training regulations for lifts include securing the boom or ladder in the stored position when the vehicle is in motion, requiring employees to wear fall protection devices attached to the bucket or boom, and obeying weight limits of the boom and bucket posted by the manufacturer.
Complying with these requirements can prove overwhelming for a company, requiring you to either create a training program of your own, or absorb the cost of finding, selecting, and contracting with a third party training provider.
Here at Safety Services, we have developed a “Do-It-Yourself” training program that is both simple to administer and will meet all your OSHA requirements.
