There are a lot of apps and pieces of software out there but when it’s NIOSH who puts it out it’s time to pay attention.
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has just released the NIOSH Aerial Lift Hazard Recognition Simulator designed to help simulate potential hazards for companies using aerial lifts, including scissor lifts.
To sweeten the pot, NIOSH is giving it away for free.
“The Simulator, available at no cost, provides a realistic workplace with multiple, dangerous hazard types that users must navigate. Experienced aerial lift operators can refresh their knowledge, and new operators can familiarize themselves with hazards they may encounter on the job”
Download the software in zipped format, install it on your tablet or PC and start improving aerial lift safety at your company while having fun.
