Safe Operation Of Scissor And Boom Lifts
Concise Length 11 min
Elevated work platforms such as scissor and boom lifts allow us to safely perform various tasks and maintenance operations at heights that otherwise may be unreachable. While there are many different styles of lifts designed for various applications and site conditions, they all have one thing in common: the potential for serious injury or death when operated in a careless manner. Electrocution, falls, crushed body parts and tip-overs are just a few examples of incidents that often result from unsafe operation. This video discusses the procedures lift operators must follow to prevent these types of incidents. Topics include factors that affect stability, pre-operational inspection, protecting against falls from platforms and safe driving procedures.
