Key safety factors when operating Boom lifts:
Operators have to observe the minimum safe approach distance (MSAD) from power lines. Voltage can arc across the air to find an easy path to ground.

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

Boom lift workers should tie off to ensure their safety. The lanyard and safety tools should be attached to manufacturer provided anchorage, and never to other poles or wires. Tying off may or may not be necessary in scissor lifts, that depends on particular job risks, local rules, or employer guidelines.

The maximum slope would be specified by the manufacturer. Workers should avoid working on a slope, whenever possible. When the slope is beyond recommended situation, the lifting device must be transported or winched over the slope. A grade could be measured with no trouble by laying a minimum 3-feet long straight board or edge on the slope. Next 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 called the rise) and then dividing the rise by the length of the straight edge. Then multiply by 100.
