How does it work?
It’s easy! Just give us the job location and requested date. We appreciate advanced scheduling, 24-48 hour notice is usually sufficient, but do not wait till last minute — we may be already booked.
Certification class takes 45 minutes to 1 hour. You and your workers will learn the hazards associated with aerial work, safety practices, etc. At the end, we issue a certificate of fitness to each worker and they can start work immediately.
You will have an OSHA compliant Aerial Lift training, safe and responsible employees, and the peace of mind that comes with certified workers.
Who needs to be Certified?
OSHA says that everyone stepping onto an aerial platform has be certified. Mandatory. Period. Think of it as driving a car without a driver’s license. According to OSHA every operator must be trained “by persons who have the knowledge, training, and experience to train operators and evaluate their competence.” – That’s us.
This applies to all employees (and employers) – Federal, State, Local and Private organizations in every industry, not just construction.
Does experience matter?
Sure doesn’t. 88% of fatalities were from preventable operator error. An experienced operator who was never trained is far more likely to cause an accident or atract a violation even compared to a novice who was properly trained.
OSHA violations start at $5,000 per incident, and an employer can quickly rack up $20,000 in violations in just one visit by one inspector. 64% of all worldwide fatalities on AWPs happen in the USA. According to the statistics from IPAF, a majority of fatalities on AWPs (aerial work platforms) or MEWPs (mobile elevating work platforms) come from Electrocution and Entrapment. Mechanical failure only contributed to 12% of fatalities, while the remaining 88% of fatalities were from preventable operator error. Other fatal hazards such as Overturns and Falls, as well as non-fatal accidents are also preventable through education and certification.
Don’t assume that someone who has done it before knows how to do it safely and legally. Violations result in work shutdowns and additional expenses for the company.
Just take a quick look at the OSHA Database of Fatality and Catastrophe Investigation Summaries related to aerial platforms, along with hundreds of violation fines issued.
