Although cranes have been used on construction sites for centuries, in the last 40 years, aerial work platforms, including boom lifts, scissor lifts, and others, have become critical and ubiquitous on today’s construction sites.
These complex machines require extensive training to ensure they are operated safely due to the high potential for fatal incidents. In addition to OSHA regulations, aerial lifts can also be regulated by standards developed by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), which are incorporated into OSHA standards.
The regulations pertaining to these lifts can be challenging to understand and to apply to cases involving jobsite incidents. S-E-A has safety experts trained and certified as aerial work platform operators, who have also served as construction site safety directors, so we can guide you through the regulations and responsibilities to get to the facts of the matter. Depending on whether the case involves equipment operation, site safety, or failure analysis, S-E-A’s team can assist.
