Fall Safe Mechanism In Scissor Lift

On a large industrial scissor lift used in construction and other mechanical industries, people stand on top of the lifts to work. It could be a simple work as window cleaning or more complex construction work or installation work. There is a platform at the top and more than one person can stand and work freely. Since these lifts go to greater heights, safety is important. There is a need for fall protection else it is possible that a person standing on top could be seriously injured.

There is a need for guardrail system to be installed on the platform for employee fall protection. Wherever it is not possible to have a guardrail system, an alternative mechanism must be in place such as personal fall protection system. This is required and mandatory as per various Industrial standard health safety acts. It is also important to buy from standard manufacturers who take care of all safety standards, this is my recommendation.
