“It’s time to think differently,” said Jim Dorris, CSP, vice president of health, safety, environment & sustainability for United Rentals. Dorris kicked off last week’s Safe Access, Fall Protection & Training (SAF-T) Conference with a presentation on leading safety through innovation and technology. The event was held in conjunction with the Scaffold & Access Industry Association’s Annual Convention in Nashville.

Combining a working height of 69'7" (21.2 m), a horizontal reach of 40' (12.2 m), and an up and over clearance of 27'6" (8.4 m), Skyjack's SJ63 AJ articulating boom lift is designed for versatility. Superior positive traction and terrainability is provided by the axle-based 4WD used in many of Skyjack's powered access product designs, which accounts for a proven low maintenance, rugged, and reliable drive train. 360 degree turret rotation and zero tail swing allow for flexible operation of this boom lift in tight locations.

OSHA recently issued its citation for an accident that drowned a carpenter at a bridge-construction site in St. Louis, Mo. The worker was in an aerial lift that was knocked off a barge into the river.

OSHA is fining the joint venture that is the project’s general contractor $15,300 for four safety violations related to the accident. At press time, it was unknown whether the joint venture would contest the citation.
