Why are boom lifts used?
Boom lifts, or otherwise known as aerial lifts, are used on job sites to elevate workers to different heights for various tasks. The most common uses of the boom lift include:
- Painting, typically high walls and ceilings
- Building maintenance tasks
- Installation projects, such as lighting
- Construction projects, for example, erecting scaffolding
- Industrial work
The operation of an aerial lift has many risks. This is due to the mobility of these lifts and their restrictive work space, and the heights that they elevate workers. Hazards such as falls, crushing, tip-overs, trapping, and electrocution, have consistently jeopardised the safety of employees and even killed workers each year.
While it is your employer’s duty to assess these risks and provide adequate training for your health and safety, accidents still occur.

Compensation for electrocutions, collision, crushing, and other boom lift accidents
Due to the purpose of a boom lift, workers are often subjected to hazardous environments and conditions both on and off construction sites.
The nature of your work may risk your safety and place you near telephone poles and overhead power lines, which can lead to electrocution. Objects may fall and crush, knock, or tip-over the boom lift and any workers who operate them. The maximum weight of lift may be exceeded and cause collapses, or the equipment could fail and affect worker safety.
On a construction site, a lift may be operated near dangerous equipment on the ground or amongst vehicles that could collide with the lift and lead to injury. Contact with high winds or unstable ground may cause tipping and lead to crushing injuries.
Thanks to the dangers involved with the use of boom lifts, you may have sustained injuries that could make you eligible to claim legal action such as workers compensation. No matter how you were injured in your accident, we are here to offer advice and target a compensation claim for your injuries.
