Our Scissor Lift Safety Training Kit is a convenient and cost-effective training solution, perfect for in-house safety coordinators. This “Train-the-trainer” style kit is flexible for individual training sessions via computer, group sessions in a classroom setting, or out on the jobsite.
A scissor lift operates by contracting a series of folding supports, which in turn raises a work platform. These lifts are common in construction, maintenance, and repair work, making elevated work areas accessible that would otherwise require the time and expense of fixed scaffolding. These helpful devices do not come without risks, making scissor lift safety imperative. Over 50 workers are killed each year in scissor lift accidents which is why having proper OSHA safety training in the workplace is vital.
Both the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) have a series of rules designed to protect employees and encourage scissor lift safety. ANSI requires that employees inspect scissor lifts before use. ANSI also specifies that:
OSHA has a series of regulations governing the use of Scissor Lifts. These regulations are 1926.451, 1926.452, 1926.453, and 1926.454.
Additionally, the training addresses the ANSI standard for mobile elevating work platforms (92.24).
These scissor lift safety rules include securing the ladder in the stored position when the vehicle is in motion, employees must have a body harness and lanyard attached to the bucket or boom, and obeying weight limits of the boom and bucket posted by the manufacturer.
Staying OSHA compliant can prove overwhelming for a company, requiring you to either create a scissor lift safety program of your own, or absorb the cost of finding, selecting, and contracting with a third party training provider.
Happily, there’s an easier way to meet your scissor lift safety needs. Here at Safety Services we have developed a “Do-It-Yourself” scissor lift safety program that is both simple to administer and will meet all your OSHA requirements.
Our Scissor Lift safety training kit is a simple three-step solution that allows a knowledgeable person train all your employees and bring your company into compliance.
1. Classroom/online training – The first step of our program is an intuitive electronic training session. Through the program, employees can navigate a computer based training program at their own pace, and then take an automatically graded test. The kit also includes presentations and printable student handouts that your instructor can use for classroom lecture presentations to groups of students.
2. Field training – The second step of scissor lift safety training is in the field. During this portion of the session, your appointed trainer shows the trainee the infield applications of the materials they learned in the classroom session.
3. Evaluation – The third step to the training session is evaluation. Through this step, the trainer either evaluates the trainee and signs off on Scissor Lift certification or retouches on topics that need more work.
This innovative kit features an Interactive Training Program, Student’s Handbook, Instructor’s Handbook, OSHA Regulations, Student Tests, Training Logs, Certificates, Wallet Cards and More.
Our Scissor Lift safety training program will allow you to ensure that your company is currently compliant, and will remain that way in the future.
Now is the time to make sure your employees, capital assets, and your business are protected. Effective safety training will ensure your employees are qualified and safe. All certification through the program meets OSHA requirements. If you have a question about safety manuals or are ready to order our Scissor Lift safety training kit, give us a call at 888-461-5023.
