We have several aerial lifts (JLG, Snorkel, scissor lifts, articulating boom platforms, etc.) around our facility.

Today we're going to review some safety tips for those working in and around this equipment.

I'm glad you mention that ground controls should not be operated except in emergency situations. I can imagine that having the lift move when you're not in control of it would be one of the most unnerving experiences! For the safety and well-being of everyone involved, it's much smarter to let the man in the lift be in charge of what's happening with the machine.
