Operator Training Participant's GuideFirst Edition First Printing Part No. 72836Genie Operator TrainingIntroductionThis training is designed to be general in nature since it covers safe operating procedures for all types of Genie aerial platforms. It is expected that operators will follow established familiarization procedures prior to operating aerial platforms not specifically addressed during this training. This course consists of four key areas of learning and proficiency demonstration. We are going to talk about Responsibility, Safety and Operation and finish with Hands-on. The most important thing we can teach you today is to rely on the appropriate operator's manual for the aerial platform you are learning to operate. It contains all of the safety rules and operating instructions you will need. We have provided you an appropriate Operator's Manual for your use during the training and as a follow-up reference.2Part no. 72836 CopyrightC 1999 by Genie Industries.

It also provides a detailed description of the safety practices you must follow as an operator of aerial platforms. We encourage you to read the Responsibilities Manual. It must be kept on the aerial platform at all times. You are required to and _ _ _ _ your responsibilities as an operator before you operate any aerial platform.Part no. 72836 CopyrightCl 1999 by Genie Industries.

The presentation format illustrates the steps that lead to safe operation . 1 Safety first; understand all potential operational and use hazards. Pre-operation inspection. Function tests: Genie operator's manuals include step-by-step function tests that both test the machine functions and teach the individual how to operate the machine.2 3Before any actual operation of the machine, it is important to read the appropriate operator's manual prior to its use.Failure to obey the instructions and safety rules in the manual and on the aerial platform could result in death or serious injury. We will review the contents of the video in greater detail through classroom activities and hands-on demonstrations.START THE VIDEO NOW8Part no. 72836 Copyright C> t 999 by Genie Industries. All rights reseJVed.Genie Operator TrainingSafetyThere are specific hazards associated with operating aerial platforms. These hazards have been identified by the manufacturer and are located in the manualforeach model. These hazards are to be observed in conjunction with all other workplace safety rules and regulations. The hazards identified in the operator's manual are grouped in several categories which include tip-over, fall, collision and electrocution hazards. We would like to introduce you to an overview of these hazards. It is your responsibility to read and _ _ _ _ _ _ all of the hazards in the appropriate operator's manual.-----Part no. 72836 Copyright() 1999 by Genie Industries. All rights reseiVed.9Genie Operator TrainingSAFETYTip-over Hazards:Do not exceed the rated _ _ _ _ _capacity intended by the manufacturer. The aerial platform is intended to be elevated only on a__ surface, unless it is equipped with outriggers that are designed for use on sloped surfaces.Do not operate the machine in strong or gusty winds. Do not increase the surface area of the platform or the load. Increasing the area exposed to the wind will machine stability. Do not place or attach _ _ _ _ _ _ loads to any part of the aerial platform .Do not alter or disable machine components that affect the aerial platform's stability or replace them with items of different weight. Do not place ladders or scaffolds in the platform or against any part of the machine.10Part no. 72836 CopyrightC> 1999 by Genie lndus1ries.

And of course, never use a machine if any tampered with. device is malfunctioning or has beenFall HazardsAny occupant of a self-propelled boom must wear protection. The recognized standard for booms is a body harness and shockabsorbing lanyard. Genie recommends fall protection when using any aerial work platform. Do not operate the machine unless the guard rails are properly installed and the operation.

Check the work area for ______obstructions or other possible hazards. Genie recommends wearing a hard hat when operating aerial platforms. Be aware of crushing hazard when grasping the platform guardrail.Limitspeed according tocondition of ground surface, congestion, slope, location of personnel, and anyotherfactors which may cause collision. Be aware of limited sight distances and blind spots when driving or operating a machine. Be aware of boom position and tailswing when rotating the turntable.Do notthe platform unlessthe areas below are clear of personnel and obstructions.12Part no. 72836 CopyrightC> 1999 by Genie Industries. All nghls reserved.Genie Operator TrainingSAFETYElectrocution HazardsAerial platforms are not electrically _ _ _ _ _ _ and provide little or no protection from electrocution.It is mandatory that all operators fully understand the potential for electrocution when operating an aerial platform. High voltage overhead power lines are most often not insulated. The operator or any part of the machine will not have to come in direct contact with a power line to be in extreme danger. High voltage electrical current can jump up to 45 feet to seek a ground.Keep away from the aerial platform if it contacts energized _ __Operators must know, or find out, the voltage of all power sources in their work area and maintain safe distances in accordanceWorking near energized power sources requires common sense and planning. Tohelpwiththe planning, there should be information in the operator's manual and on attached to the aerial platform that will identify the safe distance you must maintain when working near electrical apparatus. This is called the "Minimum Safe Approach Distance"(MSAD). Do not operate a machinewith _ _ _ _withoutthis information.Part no. 72836 CopyrightC> 1999 by Genie Industries.

The Pre-operation Inspection is a visual inspection performed by the operator prior to work shift. The inspection is designed to discover if anything is apparently wrong with a machine before the operator performs the function tests. The operator's manual contains information about how to perform this inspection.You will need to check for modifications, damage or loose or missing parts. A damaged or modified aerial platform must be used.lf damage or any variation from factory delivered condition is discovered , the aerial platform must be _ _ _ and removed from service. Repairs to the aerial platform may only be made by a qualified service technician, according to the manufacturer's specifications. After repairs are completed, the operator must perform a _ _ _ _ _ __ inspection again before going on to the function tests. Scheduled maintenance inspections shall be performed by qualified service technicians, according to the manufacturer's specifications and the requirements listed in the responsibilities manual.16Part no. 72836 CopyrightCl1999 by Genie Industries.

The operator must follow the step-by-step instructions to test all machine functions. A malfunctioning aerial platform must be used. If malfunctions are discovered, the aerial platform must be tagged and removed from service. Repairs to the aerial platform may only be made by a qualified service technician, according to the manufacturer's specifications. After repairs are completed, the operator must perform a preoperation inspection and function tests again before putting the aerial platform into service.Part no. 72836 CopyrightC> 1999 by Genie Industries.

It is the operator's responsibility to follow all the safety rules and instructions in the operator's, safety and responsibilities manuals. Unless specifically permitted in the operator's manual, aerial platforms should not be used for lifting anything other than personnel and lighttools.Onlyand authorizedpersonnel should be permitted to operate a machine. If more than one operator is expected to use a machine at different times in the same work shift, they must all be qualified operators and are expected to follow all safety rules and instructions in the operator's, safety and responsibilities manuals. That means every new operator should perform a pre-operation inspection, _ _ _ _ _ _ , and a_ _ _place inspection1_ _ _ _ _ using the aerial platform.Part no. 72836 CopylightC> t 999 by Genie Industries.
