Man Lift Safety measures
A man lift is a specific kind of hydraulic platform that is designed to raise a person vertically down and up. This aerial lift is also called a vertical personnel lift. It is used in a variety of industries for many different reasons. Man lifts are potentially very dangerous even if they could be really useful. When operating one, there are several standard safety measures which need to be taken into consideration when using this type of machinery.

Get Proper Training
It is a great idea to read the handbook prior to utilizing a man lift. Another good idea is to watch how other operators use the man lift before driving it by yourself. This presents a great opportunity to ask a qualified operator any general questions and become familiar with the procedures. Watching a qualified individual, someone who knows what they are doing can teach you numerous good habits right from the start. After the observations and reading are done, make sure the required training is successfully finished.

Nearly all companies will need their operators to receive training from a licensed operator. The training course would consist of manufacturer operating requirements, hazard precautions, information on the scope of hazards connected with using the lift, in addition to information pertaining to the rated load capacity, like for example workers and Materials. Lastly, training would incorporate a demonstration of skill and knowledge in how to utilize the lift properly.

Check the Surrounding Area
Before operating any man lift, it is important to check out the location wherein the machinery is to be used. The surface should be cleared of all loose debris. Check for ground hazards like bumps, debris and holes. Visually inspect the area above the machinery for aerial hazards like overhead power lines. Any of these hazards can hugely compromise the operator's safety and nearby crews, along with other structures and machinery on site.
