Surrey Scissor Lift License

Surrey Scissor Lift License - The operation of scissor lifts carries an inherent risk of danger. Any kind of powered machine requires right handling in order to avoid accidents leading to injury or damage. Businesses must ensure that employees using this particular machinery have the needed training.

Unskilled personnel should not be permitted by their companies to use scissor lifts. The lift is designed to lift materials and people to different heights. Failure to understand and fully abide by safety standard could result in injuries for the users or damage to the lift.

For those who use scissor lifts, there is no legislation governing the utilization of fall protection. Nevertheless, manufacturers may suggest the utilization of fall protection and in some circumstances tying off in scissor lifts might be required by employer rules, job-specific risk assessments or local rules.

Before using the machine, the scissor-lift operator must perform a thorough check to ensure the equipment is in good working order. This is the operator's job, even though the unit has already been in service that same day. The operator's guidebook of the machine contains a pre-operation checklist.

The things that an operator should look for when performing a scissor lift inspection, comprises checking tire-inflation pressure, and checking platform controls and ground controls in order to make certain they are working. Watch for any delayed movement on the fly section when the boom is extending and retracting because this can indicate some cables are loose. While operating the controls, make certain that the emergency stop switches work. Operate functions against the machine's cutout switches. Test the boom control system by cycling a boom lift to the furthest extent of its operating envelope. Safety limiters must automatically stop the unit before it moves into an unstable position, if they are functioning correctly. If they aren't, shut down the lift and ensure that it is repaired before it is used again.

Proper and safe operating measures must be followed always. Levers should be operated with controlled, even pressure. A control lever should never be pushed from one position to the opposite position. The lever should be shifted to neutral, before stopping, and then proceeding in the desired direction. When released, levers and control switches should automatically return to the neutral position. Depress the foot switch prior to operating platform controls.
