Aerial Lift Safety Inspections are a Must!
Have you ever thought about why you want to have a certified dealership perform your frequent and annual Aerial Lift Safety Inspections? Each week I usually get the privilege of riding along with a sales representative for a day’s worth of sales calls and customer interaction. Along that trip we almost always encounter a customer that has an aerial work platform or boom lift and the salesmen does his or her job and asks about who does the safety inspections. In most all instances the customer will say either, “I did not know you had to have those done” or “We have our maintenance team do the annual inspection as that is all that is required”.
Either answer just is not good enough for you the aerial lift owner. Yes, once you are an owner you have a whole new set of responsibilities under 92.6A of ANSI. Some of which include; 3 years of inspection records to include each frequent and annual, visible inspection sticker with the last annual listed within the date range and all inspections and maintenance performed by someone that is competent and knowledgeable on that make and model of lift.
If you are not familiar with this publication and you own an aerial lift, please get familiar. It MUST be aboard the lift at all times! Better yet call your authorized Aerial Access provider for assistance through setting up an inspection program and take the responsibility and hassle off your plate.
