Bucket Truck Safety


Accident report studies, conducted by risk management organizations, indicate that the majority of reportable accidents are the result of veteran employees failing to pay attention or trying to shortcut the fundamental safety practices they learned when they first started their job. With this in mind, our Safety Series is designed to remind employees of the potential risks that may exist during the performance of their jobs. Rather than introducing safety training, the Safety Series provides a reminder of good safety practices, or “refresher” training, aimed at fulfilling OSHA requirements of regular safety meetings for field staff. Beyond the personal benefits of employee participation in safety training, employers can experience a significant reduction in lost work time and worker’s compensation claims due to injuries. In addition, less time is lost completing and filing accident reports, with an added benefit of reduced insurance premiums, leading to significant financial savings. The Bucket Truck Safety course pertains to all employees that drive and/or operate a bucket truck. The utility and flexibility of a bucket truck exposes the operator to dangerous elements that range from working above the ground to parking at a busy intersection.

The Bucket Truck Safety course reminds the learner of the regulations that apply to bucket truck operations as well as key safety protocols such as daily inspections, driving and parking considerations, personal protective equipment (PPE) requirements, and techniques for positioning equipment.
