Several fall protection issues relating to scissors lifts and aerial lifts.
Standard Number: 1926.453

Dear Mr. Wright:
This is in response to your letter of June 29 to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in which you wanted to confirm your understanding of several fall protection issues relating to scissors lifts and aerial lifts.
We concur that neither the OSHA standards nor the applicable ANSI standard (A92.6-1990) require employees on scissors lifts to tie off while on platforms equipped with guardrails. If guardrails are removed or ineffective, then other means of fall protection would have to be provided.
The OSHA standards do, however, require employees in aerial lift baskets to be tied off to protect them from being bounced out of the basket or from climbing out of the basket.
If you have any questions, please call me or Dale Cavanaugh of my staff at (202)219-8136.
