Getting to high places can be difficult in many work environments. Sometimes a ladder is all you need. But in some situations, you will have to use other equipment to do jobs that require you to be elevated while you work. Whether you're on a construction site, inside a warehouse or performing a maintenance job "up high", scissor lifts can help you to reach high places when a ladder just isn’t enough.
Atlantic’s Training's course on "Scissor Lifts in Industrial and Construction Environments" has been designed to meet OSHA's training requirements in their "Mobile Elevated Work Platforms" (MEWPs) standard. It discusses the hazards associated with scissor lifts, the types of inspections that should be made before using a lift, the proper way to set up and operate a scissor lift and how to work safely on the ground near a lift.
Topics covered in the course include:
The objective of Atlantic's Scissor Lifts in Industrial and Construction Environments video Program is to review the various types of scissor lifts, make employees aware of the hazards that are associated with these lifts, and give them the information that they'll need to work safely whether they're using a lift or working around one.
