Can you learn everything there is to know about aerial lifts in a single blog? We’re certainly going to try with this post!
Aerial lifts are a multi-billion dollar industry. Manufacturers from (primarily) the United States, Europe, South Korea and Japan provide the bulk of aerial lifts for construction companies, maintenance firms, government agencies and more.
You need training to work on one. Without specialized instruction from a high-quality training provider (such as Aerial Lift Certification), your chances of getting a well-paying job are next to none.
They can reach over 20 stories high! If you’re afraid of heights, you might want to stay off the really big aerial lifts.
Aerial lifts are found in many types of industries. If a worker is required to work above ground, you can be sure an aerial lift isn’t far away. Painters, electricians, maintenance workers and others depend on aerial lifts every day on the job.
The work pays well. Given that an aerial lift operator doesn’t require a bachelor’s degree (or even an associate’s degree), they are one of a few groups of specialized employees than can make a decent living without spending years and years in the classroom.
Aerial lifts are “outsource proof,” to some extent. There are many jobs nowadays that are heading overseas. Customer support, HR staff, technical workers and more are being replaced by cheaper personnel. But you can’t replace an aerial lift worker!
The power varies. Aerial lifts are run by diesel, propane, gasoline and even rechargeable batteries.
