Bucket trucks are used primarily by Hydro crews, but are employed for other purposes by such groups as parks and forestry staff. Unfortunately most people who use these pieces of equipment do not realize the potential for tipping when operating on uneven ground or for running into things such as hydro lines or other overhead obstacles. They also forget that Fall Arrest training is mandatory for all operators. Thus it is vital that all staff who have a need to use this type of vehicle receive the proper training on it before climbing aboard.
