Operate PITs using elevated work platforms safely.
(1) You must make sure the PIT operator:
(a) Is attending the lift equipment when workers are on the platform;
(b) Is in the normal operating position while raising or lowering the platform.
A PIT is unattended when the operator:
1. Is more than twenty-five feet away; or
2. Cannot see the PIT.
(2) You must make sure the operator does not move the PIT from one point to another while workers are on the platform.
The operator may inch or maneuver the PIT at very low speed with workers on the platform.
