Experts agree that although aerial work platforms lift workers high off the ground, they are quite safe when used properly by a well-trained operator. The challenge is making sure the operator is properly educated.

Dedication to aerial work platform training and safe use requires a commitment from the entire industry, including equipment owners, dealers and rental companies, equipment users and operators, training and safety professionals, brokers and auction companies, governing bodies, regulators, and insurance companies.
