    Man lift occupants may position themselves outside of the guardrails if they are tied off.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Occupants of a man lift should never position themselves outside of the guardrails, even if they are tied off. This is because the primary purpose of the guardrails is to prevent falls and protect the occupants. Tying off alone is not sufficient to ensure the safety of individuals working at heights. Therefore, the statement is false.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

    Placing the basket on a building ledge, roof, or any other object and using the boom to increase stability is not safe. This practice can lead to an unstable and unsafe working condition.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is advising the user to visually check for the presence of other people and any potential obstacles that could impact the stability of the lift before moving the machine.

Both of these accidents are common and pose significant risks to individuals operating or working near aerial lifts.
