Though aerial work platforms (AWPs) have managed to reduce the risk that comes with working at heights, improper safety training, or lack of it, can still lead to serious accidents.

The best way to maximize operator safety when working with AWPs is by receiving  training and certification on how to use the equipment in the safest way possible. Safety training for AWP operators will not only increase efficiency and minimize risk, but could also save lives.

I’m proud to recently have earned a PAL card, verifying that I’ve been trained to operate scissor and boom lifts safely. I’m not likely to work in an aerial lift often, but I will get the chance to run one in order to evaluate how it operates, position it for an event, or reach a work site while researching an article.
