The AWPT Safety Zone at Conexpo-Con/Agg 2008 (booth B-940 in Blue Lot) will feature a live demonstration on the dangers of not wearing a harness and the correct way to wear one. Aerial Work Platform Training (AWPT) is a non-profit organization that promotes safe and effective use of powered access equipment. To remind and encourage people to wear a harness, AWPT had that advice printed on stickers, available in six languages, that can be placed on boom lifts where all platform occupants can see.

In addition, AWPT has made available a document entitled "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.
