The aerial platform produced by Klubb are intended for an outdoor use. The use of this type of vehicle in strong winds or in gusty winds is regulated. In general, more than 45km/h is too windy to use our boom lift when the arm is expanded. However, some machines have an enhanced resistance and allow you to work at higher wind speeds. You will find this information in your product user manual. Be careful and do not forget to indicate the safety rules to your teams. using safety devices properly enables operators to work productively and safely, not only for themselves but also for other.
It is the Beaufort scale that defines the speed and power of the winds. It also give the possibility to analyze this only by looking at its environment. Invented in 1805 by Francis Beaufort, a British admiral, it goes from 0 to 12. The 0 corresponds to the absence of wind (less than 1 km/h), the 12 to a storm (more than 118 km/h). In between, there are different types of wind as breeze, fresh wind, gale.
However, the wind speed can be controlled quickly and precisely by using an anemometer. This meteorology instrument will instantly tell you the wind speed and pressure it’s an essential instrument because the wind is one of the parameters which determine the evolution of the weather and the meteorological forecast. More simply, to analyze if it’s too windy to use our boom lift, you will find the day prediction on many web sites. You will find all the content you need to follow meteorological and climate live news and can follow up to 15 prediction days.
Are different training modules available for various types of aerial platforms?
Yes, aerial platform training programs offer various modules tailored to the type of Aerial Work Platform (AWP) your employees will use. Although these training programs may seem similar, they distinguish themselves from others in specific aspects. Let’s take a closer look.
What safety procedures are emphasized during aerial platform training ?
Aerial platform training is required for ensuring the proper use of AWP by your employees. During an AWP training they will learn more about safety procedures than how to use an AWP. These safety procedures emphasized during AWP training, like the IPAF training are listed below...
