ForensisGroup man lifts expert witnesses work on the design, maintenance, failure, operation, and inspection of man lifts.
Man lifts are also known as “aerial lifts” and are one of the most common pieces of equipment used to perform work from elevated locations. Man lifts are defined by federal regulation as, “any vehicle-mounted device, telescoping or articulating, or both, which is used to position personnel.” They are commonly used to replace traditional shipyard scaffolding.
Recently, aerial lifts have found their way into the consumer market.
The major causes of man lift deaths are falls, electrocutions, collapses, or tipping.
Our man lift expert witnesses testify in cases of wrongful death and personal injury caused by workplace accidents. Claims include improper operation, inadequate training, lack of supervision, mechanical failure, design defect, and failure to provide a safe workplace. Issues typically involve negligence, standard of care, and workplace safety.
They know the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations, proper maintenance schedules, proper operation of man lifts, and training procedures, and consult with employers on issues of fall protection, accident prevention, stabilization, and positioning on man lifts.
