OSHA takes scissor lift safety seriously – and so should you. According to OSHA guideline 29 CFR 1926.451, there are certain safety considerations required for the use of scaffolding, which includes aerial lifts and scissor lifts.
Aerial Lift Certification (ALC), the leader in online-based OSHA scissor lift safety training, offers a trio of affordable, effective, OSHA-complaint training courses for all facets of scissor lift operation (we also specialize in aerial lift training). Let’s look at some general safety tips, OSHA regulations & standards, and other topics related to working with scissor lifts.
OSHA’s Scaffolding eTool covers the basics of scissor lift safety, in terms of fall protection. According to 29 CFR 1926.451(g) and 29 CFR 1910.29(b), a scissor lift must be equipped with “adequate” guiderails in place for all types of industries and operations (construction, water tower repair, shipyard work, etc.).
If such a guardrail isn’t feasible, a fall protection harness should be fastened to all workers involved with scissor lift activity, if such activity is at least 10 feet above ground level (or at least 10 feet above the next-lowest platform).
