Abstract
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), in collaboration with the National Safety Council (NSC), conducted a surveillance study of aerial platform falls/collapses/tipovers across all industry classifications. This collaborative study's objective was to establish a mechanism to determine research priorities for addressing fall incidents associated with aerial lifts. In respond to this surveillance findings, NIOSH developed an engineering evaluation project to determine the nature of the physical loadings, and environmental and ergonomic factors influencing aerial lift stability and potential for falls, and to determine possible design and engineering interventions to reduce the fall hazard potential.
