    Michael, you got it.

    OSHA state means that the state has stood up their own OSHA program at the state level that enforces OSHA or HIGHER standards. The state OSHA will handle the workplace safety and accident investigations.

    Non-OSHA states do not run their own state OSHA, though they may cover workplace safety under some other department. They fall under the same federal standards and will be investigated by federal OSHA for workplace accidents. It is sort of a misnomer, the non-OSHA states fall more under federal OSHA than the OSHA states.

    Also, as I have consumed different and more training I have loosened up my views on the use of aerial ladder as a high help or "crane". I believe that if you are using your equipment within the confines of its abilities and have trained on the techniques, shoot go for it.

    Don't forget to change out your hydraulic parts every so often, or you could risk a catastrophic failure! We purchase adapters and other parts from Hydraulics Direct (here is their website), but we've also ordered from Parker in the past.
