5 Unique Weather Considerations and Precautions for Aerial L

Number of visits: Date:2018-12-27 10:13
Strong winds. When you think weather, you probably think about temperature or precipitation. Strong breezes are an underrated part of the weather. Aerial lift operators should use extreme caution when winds get too severe – or stop their job temporarily.
 
Slippery surfaces. Snow, sleet, rain, ice – you name it, and Mother Nature can create slippery ground in no time. Always ensure your base is stable before going up in an aerial lift.
 
Hot and sticky temperatures. As a general rule of thumb, you shouldn't operate an aerial lift or AWP when it's too hot (over 90-100 degrees Fahrenheit). Extreme temps can cause loss of concentration – and that spells doom when you're up in an aerial lift! Heat exhaustion is a major concern for aerial lift workers in hot, humid conditions. When the temps start to climb, keep a water supply within reach.
 
Cold and icy temperatures. Just like hot temps, the other side of the thermometer isn't an ideal place for aerial lift workers. When the temps fall to less than 10 degrees Fahrenheit, the severe cold can cause numbness, lapses in concentration, and even severe pain! Take a break and warm up!
 
Severe weather patterns. Storms, hurricanes, and other severe weather systems are major hazards for aerial lift operators. If you're working where bad weather is expected, get clearance from your safety supervisor before proceeding. The last thing you need is to be 100 feet up in the air when a thunderstorm strikes!
