Are you aware that over 30 people die every year in the United States of America from Aerial Workplace Accidents? Typically, over half of those cases will involve an operator who wasn’t properly trained. Having an untrained workforce leads to high turnover, low employee morale, accidents, injuries, and possibly OSHA fines. Having trained operators will help mitigate these negative consequences.
Does your company struggle to keep up with your training requirements? Does employee turnover make it difficult to keep up with the training requirements? Possibly, you are simply concerned about the danger an Aerial Work Platform brings to your workforce?
The Occupational Health and Safety Administration requires that all Aerial Work Platform operators receive training prior to operation, and every 3 years thereafter. Training needs to be conducted for every type of Aerial Work Platform that will be used. Fines start at $17,200 for first time violations and increase to over $76,000 for willful violations. Since the fines went up in 2015, it is no longer worth the risk to go without training your workers.
With our Aerial Work Platform training course, we guarantee a professional trainer and a quality training experience. Since 2009 we have instructed hundreds of Aerial Work Platform courses, and our trainers enjoy what they do! Our fast-paced interactive course will provide your staff with the tools they need to operate Aerial Work Platforms safely.
You maybe asking yourself, do I really want to put our employees through another training class? For Aerial Work Platforms the answer is yes. Operating these enormous machines with untrained workers leaves your company susceptible to whistleblower complaints, fines, and willful violations. The simple peace of mind of knowing your workers are trained if there is an accident or a complaint is invaluable. Also, if your workers are trained they will know how to prevent the dangerous scenarios that come with working with Aerial Work Platforms. Examples of the hazards include:
- Contact with Overhead Objects
- Load Capacities
- Falls from Elevated Levels
- Objects Falling from Lifts
- Ejections from Lift Platforms
- Structural Failures
- Entanglement Hazards
Our training will include explanations of electrical, fall, and falling objects hazards. Demonstrations of the skills and knowledge needed to operate an Aerial lift before operating it on the job. Understanding and recognizing unsafe conditions. Instructions on how to correctly operate the lift. When and how to perform inspections, and where to find the manufacturer’s requirements.
What are the scenarios where retraining of Aerial Work Platforms is required?
If anyone is involved in accident during the use of Aerial Work Platform retraining should take place immediately. If new hazards are discovered within the workplace, and if you change the type of Aerial Work Platform used make sure to get an Aerial Work Platform training scheduled. Refresher training is recommended every 2 years and must be conducted every 3 years.
Do I need to wear a harness and lanyard when I operate an Aerial Work Platform?
There is a gray area here that some companies choose to take advantage of. However, we recommend that you should also wear a harness and lanyard to protect against falls out of the Aerial Work Platform, and possible ejection during user or hydraulic information.
How much does an Aerial Work Platform Training course cost per class?
Typically, our Aerial Work Platform class costs $895. This will allow you to enroll 12 students at your location. Travel fees maybe associated if you can’t work around our current travel schedule.
How long does the course take to complete?
This will depend on the variety of Aerial Work Platforms your company uses. If you only use a boom and a scissor lift the course will typically last between 3 – 4 hours with the hands-on activities. If you have 4 or 5 machines the course could take up to 5 -6 hours.
Does proActive Safety Services provide an Aerial Work Platform for the class?
We prefer to train on the equipment that your employees will use. However, if that isn’t feasible we can arrange a rental through a local tool rental company. Typically, we pass the cost of the rental onto you.
How often do Aerial Work Platforms need to be inspected?
According to the Occupational Health and Safety Administration a pre-start inspection should be conducted prior to each work shift. The vehicle components to be inspected should include fluid levels, leaks of fluids, wheels and tires, battery and charger, lower-level controls, horn, gauges, lights and backup alarms, steering, and the brakes. The lift components inspected should include the operating and emergency controls, personal protective devices, hydraulic, air, pneumatic, fuel and electrical systems. Any fiberglass or insulating components, warning labels and placards, mechanical fasteners and locking pins, cable and wiring harnesses, outriggers, stabilizers, loose or missing parts, and any guardrail systems.
