Expected attitudes of workers in the sector

A competent Boom Lift Operator must have a “safety first” mindset. At all times he must:
• Always check, consult and confirm
• Stop immediately when abnormalities occur and reassess safety procedures
• Report all incidents and not just accidents.


If you’re looking for a versatile and efficient solution for elevated work, articulated boom lifts are an excellent option. These lifts feature multiple sections that can bend and pivot, allowing for enhanced maneuverability and reach in tight spaces.

Articulated boom lifts come in a range of sizes and capacities to suit various jobs and industries, from construction and maintenance to landscaping and entertainment. Investing in an articulated boom lift can not only improve safety and productivity on your job site but also reduce costs by eliminating the need for scaffolding or other cumbersome equipment.

With their ability to reach high and difficult-to-access areas, articulated boom lifts are an essential tool for any business that needs to perform work at height.

Case Study in Singapore (from Yahoo News)

A boom lift operator who died after being crushed in a workplace accident last year was not formally trained to carry out his job, a coroner’s court heard.

The death of 34-year-old Bangladeshi national Paul Jony at Hock Ann Seng Industries along Tuas Avenue 18 on 23 November last year was found by Coroner Christopher Goh to be an “unfortunate misadventure”.

In his findings made available on Wednesday (5 May), Goh said, “It is likely that the accident could have been avoided had the deceased undergone the necessary training and made aware of the likely hazards associated with boom lift operations.”
