Working at elevated heights often requires additional gear or other attachments to ensure a safe work environment. That’s why we offer a wide range of aerial lift safety equipment for rent like boom lift fall arrest platforms and aerial work personal fall protection systems. No matter the project, United Rentals has the right aerial lift attachment rentals to enhance the safety and productivity of your lifts.
Aerial lifts should be inspected every 90 days (about three months) or 150 hours, whichever comes first, according to federal law. This includes testing emergency lifting and lowering systems, conditions of controls and more, and should also apply to safety accessories attached to an aerial work platform.
According to OSHA requirements, fall protection systems, including harnesses, are required whenever working at height. A boom lift harness must be worn at all times while operating a cherry picker, regardless of the lift's height.
