Did you miss the Live SAF-T Conference this year in Nashville? Lift and Access will be providing a live encore presentation of a session held during the conference. Presented by Brad Boehler, president of Skyjack, “Safe Movement of Equipment on Jobsites” will take place at 2 pm EST on Sept. 10. This webinar is sponsored by the International Powered Access Federation.
In this presentation, Boehler will explore approaches to achieving safe movement of equipment on construction sites. While the emphasis will be on the aerial lifts, a number of the areas discussed will be applicable to equipment in general.
During the webinar, Boehler will present an analysis of equipment accidents and their causes, as well as review risk assessment and common issues to avoid. The role of equipment training, fall protection, and secondary guarding systems will be reviewed.
