Fall Protection for Elevated Work Platforms

Each year, workers are exposed to falls from height while operating elevated work platforms. Performing work using scissor lifts or articulating booms is commonplace on construction sites, however many misconceptions exist surrounding the proper fall protection requirements when operating this machinery. Injuries occur when equipment is used incorrectly or operated in an uncertain environment. This webinar will share the various fall protection requirements, limitations and possible solutions for improving worker safety in these applications.

This webinar will cover:

  • Relevant legislative requirements
  • Why guardrails are not sufficient fall protection
  • Best practices for elevated work platform fall protection
  • Product needs for this application
