Elevated work platforms enable personnel to access work areas which would be not reachable otherwise. There is inherent risk in the operation of these devices. Workers who operate them should be trained in the proper operating techniques. Preventing accidents is vital.

The program is suitable for people who operate self-propelled boom supported elevated work platforms and self-propelled elevated work platforms. Upon successful completion of the course, participants would be given a certificate by somebody qualified to confirm the completion of a hands-on assessment.

Industry agencies, local and federal regulators, and lift manufacturers all play a role in establishing standards and providing information to be able to help train operators in the safe use of elevated work platforms. The most important ways to prevent accidents related to the use of elevated work platforms are the following: having on safety gear, conducting site assessment and inspecting equipment.

Vital safety factors when operating Boom lifts:
Operators need to observe the minimum safe approach distance (MSAD) from power lines. Voltage can arc across the air to be able to find an easy path to ground.

So as to maintain stability when the platform nears the ground, a telescopic boom has to be retracted before lowering a work platform.

Boom lift workers should tie off to guarantee their safety. The lanyard and safety tools have to be attached to manufacturer provided anchorage, and never to other poles or wires. Tying off may or may not be needed in scissor lifts, which depends on specific employer guidelines, job risks or local rules.

Avoid working on a slope which goes beyond the maximum slope rating as specified by the manufacturer. If the slop exceeds requirements, then the equipment must be winched or transported over the slope. A grade can be easily measured by laying a straight board or edge of at least 3 feet on the slope. Afterward a carpenter's level could be laid on the straight edge and the end raised until it is level. The percent slope is obtained by measuring the distance to the ground (the rise) and then dividing the rise by the length of the straight edge. Then multiply by 100.
