Best Practices of Personal Fall Protection for Aerial Work Platforms

Rental businesses, manufacturers, associations, educators, regulators, users and operators have joined forces to produce a Statement of Best Practices of Personal Fall Protection Systems for Aerial Work Platform Equipment, which identifies roles and responsibilities, required training and familiarization with this equipment.

The Guide is designed as a general reference for those who want to understand basic fall protection and the best practices for the use of personal fall protection systems with aerial work platform (AWP) equipment. It also is intended for those who do not have a professional safety background but want an overview of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) aerial lift standards that define fall protection requirements when using AWP equipment.
