2. What is the minimum distance that needs to be maintained between the machine and its load from an energized power line?
When working near power lines maintain a minimum clearance of at least 10 feet away from the nearest overhead line. In addition, any conductive object that can be contacted must be maintained at least 10 feet from overhead. If elevated, it should be kept far enough away from power lines that if it tips over, it cannot possibly fall across any power line or even fall near enough to one to represent any electrical hazard.

Areas in which the lifts will be operated must also be inspected. During these inspections, operators must pay special attention to any ground depressions or obstructions such as drop-offs, debris and potholes. Secondly, operators should conduct a scan of the sky to ensure there are not any overhead obstructions with which lifts may come in contact. Obstructions may include power lines, trees, pipes, building structures, canopies as well as many other obstacles. Operators should maintain a minimum clearance of at least ten feet from the nearest overhead power lines.

Scissor lift hazards are very serious and not to be taken lightly. However, they are preventable with the right knowledge, protection equipment, and training. In order to prevent boom lift accidents like tip-overs, ejections, electrocutions and falls, aerial lift operators need to follow the safety procedures and precautions listed below that can be broken up into eight main components:

5. When moving the machine, the user should visually verify that other people are clear and that potholes or objects that would affect the stability of the lift are avoided.
When controlling and moving the aerial lift, operators must be aware of their surroundings and ensure they have clear visibility of everything on all sides of them. Do not drive near drop-offs, holes, or loading docks.

6. Before operating a scissor lift, check to see if you are positioned on a slope.
Operating your boom lift or scissor lift on a slope can be extremely dangerous. If possible avoid elevating on slopes - the risk of a tip over increases as you elevate the platform or bucket. In fact, it is recommended you only use your aerial lift on a firm, level surface.
