MEC Rough Terrain Scissor Lifts
Disadvantages of Scissor Lifts
A scissor lift is a particular kind of mobile scaffolding. This wheel-mounted machinery gives power to a work platform which moves up and down. The lift could be powered by propane, electricity, diesel or gas. Scissor lifts are characterized by various scissor-like joints which raise the machinery by collapsing and expanding. Many safety features are built into modern scissor lifts, especially models which are newer. Like with any safety features, they might not be able to guarantee safety and some features could be manually overridden by operators or they could sometimes malfunction.
Construction workers normally use scissor lifts to work at higher heights. Workers could lift the work platform to just beneath the ceiling level. The issue with accidental elevation could happen if the workers inadvertently bump into the elevation controls while working. In the ceiling scenario, the controls might be accidentally activated and the platform could rise up and accidentally crush them into the ceiling.
Another way employees have to be very careful is to be sure they know the environment they are in while using the machine in order to ensure they don't accidentally electrocute themselves. If, for example, the operator makes direct contact with or accidentally touches an induction field or an electrical conductor, terrible consequences can happen.
While operating a scissor lift, it is important to be familiar with the loading restrictions in the handbook of your scissor lift. Really terrible consequences can happen if the platform is mis-loaded. A lateral-load is amongst the possible issues which can take place if the entire lift overturns. This situation happens when a heavy material or tool like for instance a concrete slab that hangs over the side of a scissor lift platform, causing the entire machinery to become unbalanced at once and greatly prone to dangerously tipping over.
