ARE SCISSOR LIFTS SAFE?
Scissor lifts are safe if they are used in the manner for which they were intended by the manufacturer. There are a number of factors that affect the level of safety while working with scissor lifts.
It is absolutely essential that all operators, occupants and supervisors receive training on how to safely handle the scissor lift. Basically, if you have any interaction with the scissor lift or are responsible for workers that do, training should be happening. By ensuring workers understand how to safely use the scissor lift, workplace accidents involving the scissor lift can be greatly reduced
Scissor Lifts need to be properly maintained to avoid possible misshaps during operation. Scissor lifts manufactured by Hy-Brid Lifts have only two hydraulic connection points and can be fitted with maintenance free AGM batteries, making them easier to maintain than competitive scissor lifts.
