Identification of Hazards

Recently, a coalition of aerial work platform experts developed a new guide titled Statement of Best Practices for Workplace Risk Assessment and Aerial Work Platform Equipment. The goal is to inform aerial lift users of the best practices for analyzing workplace risks and choosing the right personnel lift for each specific task.

The genesis of this development began with recognizing a need to aid in the identification of hazards, provide guidance for conducting a thorough workplace risk assessment, and implementing control measures. In addition, the guide will assist in the selection of the most suitable AWP equipment for the work involved.  This new guide can be downloaded from any of the following organizations:

-       American Rental Association

-       International Powered Access Federation

-       Scaffold and Access Industry Association
