What is Click It?

A safety campaign to encourage all users of boom type platforms to wear a full body harness with a short lanyard attached to a suitable anchor point has been launched by IPAF (International Powered Access Federation) called “Click It!”. The campaign has received the approval of the Scaffold and Access Industry Association (SAIA) and is similar to successful promotional campaigns encouraging people to wear their seatbelts when riding in a car.

The program’s initiative came from companies frustrated with the fact that people are injured in boom type lifts because they are not wearing a harness that would keep them from being thrown or catapulted from the platform.  To remind and encourage people to wear a harness, IPAF had that advice printed on stickers that can be placed on the boom lift where they can be seen by all occupants in the platform. In addition, IPAF has made available a document titled “Technical Guidance Note AWPT H1” that provides information on their recommendation for the proper use of harnesses and lanyards on different types of aerial platforms.

Called “Clunk Click!” in the UK where it was first introduced, the campaign is being promoted worldwide by the IPAF. To date, thousands of stickers have been printed and distributed throughout the UK and the program has spread rapidly.

Skyjack Service Training can be performed at your facility. The classes are tailored to be suitable for an entry level technician as well as the experienced lift technician. Skyjack’s unique, flexible format allows our experienced instructors to provide valuable information that not only covers common troubleshooting and problems, but also addresses issues that may only affect specific geographic areas.


The technical training courses are specific for each Skyjack family model and will involve a full day formal classroom session. The classroom covers:

  • Electrical and hydraulic symbol identification
  • Component operation
  • Hydraulic and electrical schematic reading
  • Schematics are defined and traced out for each function, reviewed in detail providing your technician with a better understanding of the operation of the equipment.
  • Troubleshooting scenarios to enhance the technicians understanding, and to provide familiarity with the common components between Skyjack family models.

Each student receives a certificate and workbook so that information can be referenced later.
