(20 customer reviews)


Are you responsible for overseeing aerial lift operations at your workplace? Do you worry about the well-being of your team members working at heights? Are you concerned with being current on your OSHA and ANSI training requirements? Look no further! We have the perfect solution for you – our comprehensive Aerial Lift Safety Training Video.

Aerial lifts offer a more efficient and effective way of working than ladders and scaffolding. Still, they are also known for being responsible for numerous safety hazards, which can lead to serious injuries and fatalities. That means aerial lift workers must be trained in their use and safety regulations. This aerial lift safety training kit is an excellent course for safely using this equipment.

This Aerial Lift Training Covers These Key Safety Fundamentals:

  • How does OSHA define an aerial lift?
  • How do the ANSI Standards define a lift? (in 2020, ANSI changed its terminology from “Aerial Work Platforms” to “Mobile Elevating Work Platforms” or MEWP)
  • What are the two categories of lifts as outlined by ANSI? (Group A equipment can move vertically but only within its “tipping lines,” and Group B equipment, such as boom lifts, can move vertically beyond their tipping lines)
  • How to perform a pre-shift inspection on the lift before it is used
  • What are the different types of aerial lifts? (Extensible boom platforms, aerial ladders, articulating boom platforms, vertical towers, etc.)
  • A discussion on the four basic components of an aerial lift:
    • The base of the lift, which supports the lift’s platform or bucket
    • The lifting mechanism
    • The platform or bucket itself
    • The controls, which are often located on both the base of the aerial lift and the platform
  • What are the OSHA requirements for authorization and proper training to operate an aerial lift?

Additional Topic Covered in This Aerial Lift Training Program:

  • What is a dead man switch, and how is it used?
  • What is an equipment inspection, what is a worksite inspection, when are they required, and how are they done?
  • How do we calculate the total weight of the load being lifted (Materials, people, etc.), and how do we determine that the aerial lift is capable of handling this load?
  • What are the ANSI Standards around “job site safety,” and what are the three main components:
    • Requires the creation of a “Safe Use Program.” 
    • Requires that a “risk assessment” be completed for each job the lift is used on
    • Requires a “rescue plan” for each lift

Manlift Training Topics Discussed In This Course:

  • How to recognize and avoid unsafe conditions in areas where you will be using the man lift
  • What is the difference between an “operator” and an “occupant”? 
  • When are personal fall restraints or fall arrest devices required to be used while operating a manlift?
  • What are the appropriate fall protection safety protocols and personal protective equipment (PPE) for operating an aerial lift?
  • Does ANSI require each lift to have a gated entrance? (Yes, for all new lifts)
  • What are the “safety best practices” to be aware of when operating an aerial or manlift?
  • Can chains be used for entrance guards? (No, they are no longer allowed per the ANSI Standard)
  • What are the two different types of inspections required prior to using the lift? (A pre-start inspection and a work site inspection)

Aerial Lift Certification Training Program Additional Discussion Points:

  • What safety devices are required on a newly manufactured aerial lift? (sensors that will stop the lift if the weight limit has been exceeded, wind speed sensors that will alert when the lift should be lowered in windy conditions, and more
  • Are OLDER aerial lifts required to have all the sensors and other requirements that ANSI has outlined? (NO, they only relate to NEW lifts being manufactured)
  • After you receive aerial lift certification, how often is retraining required?
  • How does an aerial lift differ from a scissor lift?
  • How to operate the lift around electrical lines
  • Why certification of all lift operators and occupants is so critical to ensure regulatory compliance as well as enforce employee safety procedures
  • How to avoid tip overs while operating the machine
  • Are there different types of tires required depending on the surface the lift is being used on? (Yes, for example, aerial lifts used outdoors on rough surfaces must have foam-filled tires)
  • What safety tips should workers be aware of when operating an aerial lift?
  • And much more…
