Aerial Lifts
  • Types of Aerial Lifts and locations
  • Auto Shop TMZ-34/19
  • McPhee Room 104 AWP-24
  • McPhee Rooms 164/263A UL-31/37

Aerial Lifts
  • Safety Information
  • Work platform is to be used by trained and
    authorized operators only.
  • Maximum platform capacity
  • TMZ-34/19 is 500 pounds possible 2 persons.
  • AWP-24 is 300 pounds no more than one person
  • UL31/37 is 300 pounds no more than one person

Aerial Lifts
  • Operations
  • Only Authorized persons can operate lifts
    (Classroom, Hands-on competency is required).
  • Aerial Lifts are checked out or reserved at the
    FPM office by authorized persons only.
  • Ground personnel must be properly trained and
    authorized for lift operation.
  • Inspection of the lift must be performed before

Aerial Lifts
  • Pre-Operation Inspection
  • Be sure that the manuals are legible and in the
    storage container located on the platform
  • Be sure that all decals are legible and in place
  • Check the hydraulic power unit oil level
  • Platform and Ground Control Panel must be tested
    prior to use to determine that such controls
    Panel are in safe working condition.

Aerial Lifts
  • Work Place Inspection
  • Do a visual inspection of the work area prior to
    beginning work
  • Hazardous locations
  • Drop-offs or holes
  • Bumps, floor obstruction or debris
  • Inadequate surface support to withstand all load
    forces imposed by the machine
  • Clearance
  • Overhead obstructions
  • High voltage conductors
  • The presence of unauthorized personnel
  • Other possible unsafe conditions

Aerial Lifts
  • Set up
  • Position machine below desired work area
  • Insert key and turn to the ground control
  • Pull out the red Emergency Stop buttons at the
    ground and platform controls
  • For TMZ 34/19
  • Pull the four (4) outriggers release handle and
    lower the outriggers, and be sure the outrigger
    lock pins are locked
  • For AWP 24 and UL - 31/37
  • Remove the four (4) outriggers from their storage
    sockets and slide into base sockets until lock
    pins snap into outrigger holes.

Aerial Lifts
  • Set Up Cont.
  • For TMZ 34/19, AWP 24, and UL 31/37
  • Adjust the four (4) outrigger leveling jacks by
    turning jack handle clockwise until each pad is
    in firm contact with floor.
  • Check the interlock display lights at the ground
    controls (TMZ-34/19 and AWP -24 only)
  • Confirm that the corresponding light is on
  • If the interlock display light is flashing,
    continue adjusting the outrigger until the light
    is on
  • While watching the base bubble level, continue to
    adjust each leveling jacks until base is level
    (bubble in the center circle)
  • Repeat procedure for each of the remaining

Aerial Lifts
  • Safe Work Practices
  • Ground controls shall not be operated during use,
    unless instructed to do so by person in the
    platform or in an emergency.
  • Never elevate platform unless all four (4)
    outriggers are properly installed, leveling jacks
    contact floor and base is level.
  • Never adjust leveling jacks while platform is

Aerial Lifts
  • Safe Work Practices Cont.
  • Employees shall always stand firmly on the floor
    of the basket.
  • Do not stand, sit or climb on edge of the basket
    or guard rails.
  • Do not use planks, ladders, or other devices for
    a work position.
  • Keep the platform floor clear of debris.
  • Do not override safety devices.
  • Learn and practice the principles of safe machine
    operation contained in the operators manual.

Aerial Lifts
  • Two Major Safety Hazards
  • Electrocution Hazards - Caused by operating close
    to power lines.
  • It is easy to accidentally contact energized
    power lines.
  • This machine is not electrically insulated and
    will not provide protection from contact with
    electrical current.
  • If lift comes in contact with energized lines,
    personnel on the ground or in the platform must
    not touch or operate the machine until energized
    power lines are shut off.
  • Do not operate the machine during lighting or

Aerial Lifts
  • Two Major Safety Hazards Cont.
  • Fall Hazards - Caused by improper operation
    and/or improper set up.
  • Fall hazard due to the potential for being
    bounced out of lift or from climbing out of the
  • Over reaching
  • Swinging under over hanging limbs, structures or
  • Stumbling over tools inside the basket.

Aerial Lifts
  • Personal Protective Equipment
  • Hard hats and Safety glasses are required
    whenever working from an aerial lift.
  • A full body harness and lanyard shall be worn
  • Lanyard needs to be attached to anchor provided
    in platform when working from an aerial lift.
  • All Aerial Lift operators must visual inspect the
    body harness lanyard before each use.
