Does your institution use aerial lifts to tape or photograph sporting events or band competitions? If so, this website is for you.
UP RIGHT! is a program developed to raise awareness of aerial, scissor and boom lift safety, and to provide schools that use lifts a better understanding of the hazards when videotaping or photographing activities like sporting events, band competitions and practices, with resources and materials to help prevent lift accidents. Each year, nearly 30 people die in aerial lift accidents, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor. The goal of this program is to help ensure that when someone goes up in an aerial lift…they go UP RIGHT!
We invite you to explore the resources on this site as you consider the many safety issues involved in operating an aerial lift.
