After completing this course, learners will be able to:
- Explain the primary intended use of aerial lifts and identify different types used on the job
- Recognize the types of hazards associated with aerial lifts
- Discuss training and re-training requirements for workers who use aerial lifts
- Explain safe work practices related to inspection, operation, and maintenance of an aerial lift
Aerial Lifts for Construction covers the following topics:
- What is an Aerial Lift?
- Types of Hazards
- Training Requirements
- Performing Inspections
- Staying Safe While Operating
- Performing Maintenance

This course covers the role and responsibility of the employer to develop and implement an energy control program, or lockout/tag-out (LOTO) for the protection of workers while performing servicing and maintenance activities on machinery and equipment.
This training helps companies comply with OSHA's 1910.147 Control of Hazardous Energy Standard (commonly known as lockout/tagout). It's designed to keep workers safe and provide essential information on all steps required by OSHA when using lockout/tagout to prevent the unexpected release of energy from machines that are being maintained or serviced. It also provides clear definitions on the roles and responsibilities of the three types of employees affected by the lockout/tagout process: "authorized employees," "affected employees," and "other employees."
