Safety requirements for scissor hydraulic lifts
Scissor-type hydraulic lift is a professional high lifting equipment with a wide range of uses. Its scissor-like mechanical structure gives the lift higher stability after lifting, a larger working platform and higher carrying capacity, so the aerial work range is larger and suitable for multiple people to work at the same time, making the aerial work more effective and safe.
The safety measures of aerial lift platforms and the requirements for the safe use of aerial work platforms are receiving increasing attention: more and more scissor-type hydraulic lifts are used in factories and construction sites. This new type of hydraulic lift provides us with the tools to work with. This is very convenient, but at the same time it also poses some safety risks. By analyzing the lift platform on site, the key should be placed on preventing forklifts from tipping over, scraping and unloading. In daily use, attention should also be paid to the daily inspection before use, careful supervision during use and maintenance after use.
When using a scissor lift, the following points should be checked.
1. The main body of the scissor lift should be labeled with the following: the upper limit of the lift’s lifting speed, rated load capacity, greater lifting height, manufacturer’s name and production date, etc.
2. The operator of the scissor fork hydraulic lift aerial work platform should attend fall protection and operation training before starting to operate the equipment.
3. The installed forklift should be verified and accepted by the site safety engineer before use, and permission for use should be obtained.
4. Users of scissor fork hydraulic lifts are required to operate and use them in accordance with the operating rules.
