The safety procedures
Every course on the aerial platform, the scissor lift or other type of equipment includes safety issues and proceedings in case of life threat or the operator’s health and other users of the equipment. Step by step, we present the procedure which should be performed when the mobile platform or other type of equipment will make it impossible for the operator to get out smoothly and even to communicate.

- if the operator of the device cannot take control over the situation, then people standing on the platform, but only those having appropriate knowledge and the owner’s authorization, can use the control panel.
- if the above situation is not possibile, then a person who is at the level of the ground can leave the platform, but only when they are familiarized with the emergency procedure of leaving the platform and they are authorised by the worker and know all other safety procedures.
Before leaving platforms such as mobile self-propelled platforms, mobile mast platforms, mobile hanging platforms or towed mobile platforms and other types, it is essential to check the ground which they are situated on in order to get rid of obstacles.
