The most essential ways to prevent accidents related to the use of elevated work platforms are as follows: having on safety gear, conducting site assessment and inspecting equipment.

Vital safety considerations when operating Boom lifts:
Operators have to observe the minimum safe approach distance (or also called MSAD) from power lines. Voltage can arc across the air to be able to find an easy path to ground.

To be able to maintain stability as the platform nears the ground, a telescopic boom should be retracted prior to lowering a work platform.

People working from the platform of a Boom lift should tie off so as to ensure their safety. Safety harness and lanyard combinations must not be attached to any anchorage other than that provided by the manufacturer, never to other wires or poles. Tying off may or may not be needed in scissor lifts, depending on specific job risks, local regulations, or employer guidelines.

The maximum slope would be specified by the manufacturer. Workers must avoid working on a slope, whenever possible. When the slope is beyond recommended conditions, the lifting device should be transported or winched over the slope. A grade could be measured with no trouble by laying a minimum 3-feet long straight edge or board on the slope. After that a carpenter's level could be laid on the straight edge and the end raised until it is level. The percent slope is attained by measuring the distance to the ground (likewise referred to as the rise) and then dividing the rise by the length of the straight edge. Afterward multiply by one hundred.
