FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

A boom lift is a type of aerial lift which allows for both vertical and horizontal reach. Boom lifts are especially useful for outdoor jobs at height, industrial tasks, construction projects, & more. Compared to scissor lifts, boom lifts have a higher reach and are more maneuverable however they also generally have a smaller work platform. The main advantage of boom lifts is that they give us access to difficult to reach places while also providing a stable and safe platform to work from.
While there is no legal standard for retraining, Advanced Consulting & Training recommends taking refresher courses every 2 years. Regular retraining and refresher courses are an effective way to ensure AEWP Boom Lift Operators remain compliant to the rules and regulations and continue to practice safety best practices. If you or your employees would benefit from a refresher or retraining course, contact ACT today!
The two most commonly used boom lifts are the telescopic boom lifts (also called straight boom lift or stick boom lift) and the articulating boom lift. Telescopic boom lifts consist of a single hinged arm which can extend. Telescopic boom lifts are best for use in open spaces or within standard, rectangular structures. Articulating boom lifts have a variety of arms which are more maneuverable. Articulating boom lifts can move the platform into smaller spaces and around obstacles. Articulating boom lifts are best used in busy spaces and more complex structures where a telescopic boom lift would not be able to properly and safely steer into position. Advanced Consulting & Training offers training for both of these types of boom lifts to ensure you and your employees are able to work as safely as possible. Contact us today!
