Terex Rough Terrain Scissor Lifts
When utilizing rough terrain scissor lifts, it is vital to use extra care and be fully aware of your surroundings in order to maintain safety. The extended booms on the equipment act as levers from the drive unit's center. Like for instance, a 6 inch bump can cause a 3 foot bounce when the driver is at the driver controls. Consider all other traffic in the vicinity, since they might not know that you are moving. Plan your assent cautiously. Park the boom lift on a flat surface which has no mud or water. These areas conceal deep potholes that could be potentially cause the occupants to fall if the tires fell into the holes. If provided, utilize all of the outriggers, extended completely. Be sure to only utilize wooden chalk blocks which are approved.
A lot of lifts operate from a metal platform on the end of the boom. The extended booms act as levers from the drive unit's center. A 6-inch bump could cause a 3-foot bounce while you are at the driver controls. Be aware of all other traffic. They may not be aware that you are moving. Plan your assent. Park the boom lift on a flat surface free of any mud or water. These areas could conceal deep potholes in which the lift tires could fall, tipping the occupants. Extend all outriggers, if provided, completely. Place just approved wooden chalk blocks underneath the outrigger pads to prevent the unit from moving.
A serious hazard for lift operators is overhead power lines. This is due regardless of what kind of lift is used. Like for example, if the operator of the platform is not being aware, or if the platform is being controlled by employees on the ground which can not accurately access proximity to wiring and hence, either the worker or the platform itself could be easily brought into contact with electrical wires. The employee might be electrocuted unfortunately unless properly insulated.
