NIOSH Launches New Site on Aerial Lifts | Construction News

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has launched a new webpage that provides information and resources to address fall-related risks and other hazards associated with aerial lifts. While aerial lifts are used frequently at construction, warehousing, and many other jobsites, they can pose potentially fatal hazards to workers. Aerial devices include boom-supported aerial platforms, such as cherry pickers or bucket trucks, aerial ladders and vertical towers.
