Safety Daily by IRWIN Industries. Rise and shine!
Your safety thought for this morning is…

Aerial Lift Overhead Protection:

  • Be aware of overhead clearance and overhead objects, including ceilings. 
  • Do not position aerial lifts between overhead hazards if possible.
  • Treat all overhead power lines and communication cables as energized, and stay at least 10 feet (3 meters) away.
  • Ensure that the power utility or power line workers de-energize power lines in the vicinity of the work.
Stability in the Work Zone:
  • Set outriggers on pads or on a level, solid surface.
  • Set brakes when outriggers are used.
  • Use wheel chocks on sloped surfaces when it is safe to do so.
  • Set up work zone warnings, such as cones and signs, when necessary to warn others.
Insulated aerial lifts offer protection from electric shock and electrocution by isolating you from electrical ground. However, an insulated aerial lift does not protect you if there is another path to ground (for instance, if you touch another wire). To maintain the effectiveness of the insulating device, do not drill holes in the bucket.
