In order to help train operators in the safe use of elevated work platforms, industry agencies, local and federal regulators, and lift manufacturers all play a part in providing the necessary information and establishing standards. The most important ways in avoiding accidents connected to the utilization of elevated work platforms are as follows: performing site assessments; checking equipment; and putting on safety gear.

Key safety considerations when operating Boom lifts:
Operators need to observe the minimum safe approach distance (MSAD) from power lines. Voltage can arc across the air to find an easy path to ground.

To be able to maintain stability when the platform nears the ground, a telescopic boom must be retracted before lowering a work platform.

Boom lift workers should tie off to guarantee their safety. The lanyard and safety tools need to be attached to manufacturer provided anchorage, and never to other poles or wires. Tying off may or may not be needed in scissor lifts, which depends on specific job risks, local rules, or employer guidelines.

Avoid working on a slope which goes beyond the maximum slope rating as specified by the manufacturer. If the slop goes beyond requirements, then the machinery should be winched or transported over the slope. A grade can be easily measured by laying a minimum 3-feet long straight board or edge on the slope. After that a carpenter's level could be laid on the straight edge and raising the end until it is level. The per-cent slope is attained by measuring the distance to the ground (also called the rise) and dividing the rise by the length of the straight edge. Afterward multiply by one hundred.
