Skyjack Safety
A scissor lift is a particular type of industrial equipment which is utilized for "positioning personnel, their equipment and their tools," according to Skyjack. Anybody who is getting ready to utilize this particular type of machine should familiarize themselves with the recommended operational and safety procedures recommended by the manufacturer in order to stay safe prior to trying to utilize this machine. It can be devastating to any bystanders and the operator themselves resulting in serious injuries if the safety measures are not followed.

In the best case scenario, the scissor lift would be operated on totally level ground. Prior to driving a scissor lift over a particular terrain, the area has to be inspected and cleared of any debris. To be able to lessen the risks of the scissor lift tipping over and potentially causing the operator to fall from his seat. It is recommended to keep away from steep grades or holes while operating. Bystanders should also remain aware and stay clear of the operating scissor lift in order to make certain that they do not get run over.

The user needs to thoroughly check all vital parts of the machine before trying to operate a scissor lift. A functional test performed while the lift is retracted allows the operator to see if all components are correctly functioning before the task is initiated. It is better to perform a daily inspection on this machine prior to the shift starting and some places even want an inspection to occur at the end of the shift too. Various companies have different rules in place to maintain safety.

Part of the inspection has to be inspecting the tires. These parts obviously add to the scissor lift's movability and also provide the machinery with a solid foundation. A faulty or worn tire can blow and throw the operator from their location on top of scissor lift.
