Let’s address one of those topics that a lot of people never think about until it is too late. And that is training for operators of aerial lifts of all types (boom-lifts and scissor-lifts) required per applicable OSHA and/or ANSI standards. I find that most employers do provide training for their lift operators on the function of the equipment’s controls. But I’m not talking about training just for the operator running the controls in the basket or work platform, I’m talking about ALL operators. Before I explain the specific problem I run across too often, it might help if I first recap the two different sets of controls available on most types of aerial lifts.
