Safety Toolbox: The Safe Use of Aerial Lifts
Aerial lifts have replaced ladders and scaffolding on many job sites due to their mobility and flexibility. They may be made of metal, fiberglass, reinforced plastic, or other materials.

Sadly, many workers are injured or killed on aerial lifts each year. This short course explores the proper use of aerial lifts, so you can stay safe.
