  2. Harnesses must be fitted correctly for safety in use.
  3. Other persons on site must be instructed in rescue procedures.

Travel

Check path that machine will be traversing to ensure adequate clearance and that surface will not cause a machine to become unstable when traveling. Ensure that the boom lift is retracted and lowered for traveling. [Articulating Boom lift rental dealer]

Precautions:

  1. Remove obstacles and cover voids, drains, etc.
  2. Check for clearance for a boom.
  3. Always travel at safe speed.

Security of worksite
