When you work with heavy machinery on a daily basis, it is important to know all the protocols to keep you safe, as well as what to do in the event of an incident. Those who work in an aerial lift are no different. Watch this video to discover what happens in the event of a worker having trouble with a lift.
There may be situations where an aerial lift will not lower, which could be due to numerous mechanical and electrical reasons. In this event, a worker can utilize an SRK-11 to get down from the lift. This self-rescue system works as a whole-body harness that attaches to the bucket and the worker. The SRK-11 allows the user to have both hands free as they descend from the bucket.
The SRK-11 will not move until the operator has control of the line, and will stop itself if someone lets go. This system comes with the ability for modification to better suit your individual work needs. The rope links can go from 20 feet all the way up to 600 feet. Additionally, if the user was to fall out of the aerial lift, it will catch the operator and absorb the shock from a sudden drop.
