Aerial Lift Train The Trainer Instructions

Everything You Need For Designating a Aerial Lift Trainer and Certify Employees Is In the Aerial Lift DVD Compliance Kit.

Step 1 - Designate Aerial Lift Trainer

Question: Do Aerial Lift trainers require a special certification to train and authorize operators?


Answer: No - OSHA grants the employer the authority to designate trainers at their discretion. They need to select someone familiar with aerial lift operation and associated hazards. OSHA does list any specific qualifications for trainers. They rely on the ANSI requirements for enforcement.

According to ANSI A92.2, Aerial Lift trainers must be:

"A person who, by possession of an appropriate technical degree, certificate, professional standing, or skill, and who, by knowledge, training, and experience, has demonstrated the ability to deal with problems relating to the subject matter, the work, or the project."

Best Practice: Designate Your Aerial Lift Trainer In Writing

OSHA does not require employers to designate trainers in writing, but it is an excellent work practice.

Step 2 - Review The Regulations

Aerial Lifts are covered by OSHA in 29 CFR 1926.453 Subpart L - Scaffolding and ANSI 92.24-2018. Aerial Lift trainers should be familiar with these regulations.

Step 3 - Conduct Training

Classroom Training

Operators must be trained on the following subjects:

  • Purpose and use of manuals
  • Importance of operating manuals
  • Pre-start inspections
  • Aerial lift malfunctions
  • Factors affecting stability
  • Purpose of placards and decals
  • Workplace inspections
  • Rules & regulations
  • Authorization to operate
  • Operator warnings and instructions
  • Use of fall protection

Hands On Training

Operators must be trained and evaluated on the actual vehicle they will be operating.

Step 4 - Reevaluate Aerial Lift Operators

Aerial Lift Operators must be reevaluated when:

  • Work area hazards change.
  • Different equipment, fall protection, vehicle type, or other items that the employee was not previously trained are put in use.
  • When an employee has been observed operating unsafely.
  • As required by the company.
