In this video, a teacher from the Agricultural School of the Park of Monza explains what are the regulations, the PPE and the procedures for working safely on the PLE (elevating work platform) in green maintenance and arboriculture sites.
For the use of the PLE, the consolidated act provides for a specific qualification after a training course and a further qualification for the correct use of PPE.
The first thing the employer is responsible for is an assessment of the dangers when working at height. Furthermore, it is necessary to delimit the area of operation of the machine and of the activities to be carried out.
Finally, at high altitude some typical dangers come into play which the arborist must pay attention to, such as falling from a height, interaction with power lines, the risk associated with the use of cutting equipment, adverse weather conditions and the presence of insects. .
The teacher then explains which PPE to wear, the safety lanyards and the attachment points and the correct use of the PLE.
