Aerial lifts are used in many industries to elevate workers to working areas
above ground level. Data indicate that most work-related deaths from aerial
lifts involve scissor lifts and boom-supported lifts, such as cherry pickers
and bucket trucks. The US-American National Institute for Occupational Safety
and Health (NIOSH) teamed with partners to design, develop, and test safer
aerial lift equipment and fall-protection systems for commercial use and to
develop specific design methods and criteria for future development.
