Terex Rough Terrain Scissor Lifts
It is really vital to use extra caution when using a rough terrain scissor lift. Drivers must be fully aware of the surrounding environment. Long booms on the machines act as levers from the drive units center. For example, a 6 inch bump can lead to a 3 foot bounce when the driver is at the driver controls. Take into account all other traffic nearby, as they may not be aware that you are moving. Plan your assent cautiously. Park the boom lift on a flat surface that has no water or mud. 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, fully extended. Be sure to only utilize wooden chalk blocks that are approved.
Many lifts operate from a metal platform on the end of the boom. The long booms act as levers from the drive unit's center. A 6-inch bump can lead to a 3-foot bounce while you are at the driver controls. Be aware of all other traffic. They might not know that you are moving. Plan your assent. Park the boom lift on a flat surface free of any water or mud. These areas can conceal deep potholes in which the lift tires could fall, tipping the occupants. Extend all outriggers, if provided, to the full extension position. Place only approved wooden chalk blocks under the outrigger pads to prevent the unit from moving.
A serious danger 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 workers on the ground that is not able to correctly access nearness to wiring and therefore, 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.
