Man lifts, personnel lifts or aerial work platforms are all terms for equipment designed to lift a worker several feet above a worksite to provide a work advantage. When working from a height, there are obvious precautions that come to mind — harnessing the worker and providing a protective basket are among them. However, there are several other factors that are less evident. For more information on personnel lifts and their safe operation, you can take training through the NC State Environmental Health and Safety Program.
