New standards for scissor lifts and boom lifts went into effect June 1, 2020, and both your operators and supervisors must have training. The biggest change for contractors will be the standards’ call for all operators and their supervisors to be trained to the new safety standards and have comprehensive Safe-Use Programs for all scissors and booms on a job site.
Our Safety Training Manager, Jeff Hauser, will train your operators and supervisors as well as develop with you the safe use program and set you up with information and a template for future sites. The program will include a site risk assessment, implement hazard controls, alert all affected employees, have a written rescue plan among other requirements, and all personnel needs to be trained on the program before using the equipment.
