  1. 1. Aerial Lifts University of Wisconsin Eau Claire By: Chaizong Lor
  2. 2. Aerial Lifts  Training Objectives – Types of Aerial Lifts – Safety information – Operations/Pre-Operation Inspection – Work place Inspection – Set-up – Standard Features – Safe Work Practice – Two Major Safety Hazards – Personal Protective Equipment – Hazards/Precautions
  3. 3. 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
  4. 4. 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
  5. 5.  Operations: – Only Authorized persons can operate lifts (Classroom, Hands-on competency is required). – Aerial Lifts are checked out or reserved at the FP&M office by authorized persons only. – Ground personnel must be properly trained and authorized for lift operation. – Inspection of the lift must be performed before use. Aerial Lifts
  6. 6. 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.
  7. 7. 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
  8. 8. Aerial Lifts  Set up – Position machine below desired work area – Insert key and turn to the ground control position – 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.
  9. 9. 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 outriggers
  10. 10. Standard Features  Aerial Lift TMZ – 34/19 – 40 ft. Working Height – 34 ft. Platform Height – 19 ft. Horizontal Reach – 360 Degree Turntable Rotation non-continuous  Aerial Lift AWP -24 – 30 ft. Working Height – 24 ft. Platform Height  Aerial Lift UL – 31/37 – 31 ft. Platform Height
  11. 11. 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 occupied.
  12. 12. 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 operator’s manual.
  13. 13. 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 storms.
  14. 14. 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 basket. • Over reaching • Swinging under over hanging limbs, structures or lines. • Stumbling over tools inside the basket.
  15. 15. 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.
  16. 16. Aerial Lifts  Hazards / Precautions – Tip-Over Hazards • Do not drive or position lifts near the edge of loading docks drop-offs or holes. • Do not raise platform on uneven or soft surfaces • Do not drive onto uneven or soft surfaces when elevated • Do not raise platform in windy or gusty conditions • Do not use the platform as a crane (the TMZ-34/19 has a cargo hook that can be used in place of the platform to lift 500 pound loads). • Do not place or attach overhanging loads to any part of the platform.
  17. 17.  Hazards / Precautions Cont. – Tip over Hazards Cont. • Do not place ladders or scaffolds in platform or against any part of this machine. • Be sure all tires are in good condition and lug nuts are properly tightened. • Do not push the machine or other objects with the boom. • Do not contact adjacent structures with the boom.

  18. 18. Aerial Lifts  Hazards / Precaution Cont. – Collision Hazards • Be aware of boom position when rotating the TMZ -34/19 turntable. • Do not lower the boom unless the area below is clear of personnel and obstructions. • Check work area for overhead obstructions or other possible hazards.
  19. 19. Aerial Lifts  Hazards/Precaution Cont. – Component Damage Hazards • Do not fully lower the booms unless the booms are aligned with the tongue. The booms must be lowered onto the boom rests.
  20. 20.  Hazards / Precaution Cont. – Lifting Hazards • Use proper lifting techniques to move, load or unload the machine. • Use proper lifting techniques when installing or removing the platform. – Damaged Machine Hazards • Do not use a damaged or malfunctioning machine. Aerial Lifts
  21. 21.  Hazards / Precaution Cont. – Battery Safety • Burn Hazards – Batteries contain acid. Always wear protective clothing and eyewear when working with batteries. • Explosion Hazards – Do not contact the battery terminals or the cable clamps with tools that may cause sparks. • Electrocution Hazards – Inspect daily for damage cord, cables and wires. Replace damaged items before operating • Lifting Hazard – Use the appropriate number of people and proper lifting techniques when lifting batteries. Aerial Lifts
