Table 10-4. Application and Uses of Aerial Devices
* Aerial device is used as a work platform
** An aerial device manufactured as a Category A may be modified and used as a
Category B and a Category B may be modified and used as a Category A. In the event
this is done, particular attention must be given to the appropriate qualification test,
gradient control devices, conductive shields, conductive liners, and bonding.
Insulated Buckets. An insulated bucket of an aerial lift is provided with a
non-conductive bucket liner. The liner shall be supported by the inside bottom surface
of the basket. The insulating buckets shall not have drain holes or access openings.
Tools and other equipment carried in the bucket must be stowed carefully
to avoid damaging the non-conductive liner.
Testing and Certification. Testing shall be set by the owner in
accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations and ANSI/SIA 92.2. Intervals
are dependent upon component function and exposure to wear, deterioration and other
agents which adversely affect component life.
\ Testing and inspection frequencies
are shown below:/1/
Periodic Inspection and Test
Frequent Inspection and Test
Daily to monthly intervals
One to twelve month intervals
Manually Propelled Elevating Aerial Platforms (ANSI/SIA 92.3), Boom Supported
Elevating Work Platforms (ANSI/SIA 92.5), and Self-Propelled Elevating Work Platforms
(ANSI/SIA A92.6), whichever is applicable for the construction, type and manufacture of
the lifts, require more frequent inspection, testing and certification as shown below:
At an interval of 3 months or 150 hours
Performed no later than 13 months
of use, whichever comes first
from the date of the prior annual
