Scissor lift training also details safe use of scissor lifts, such as maintenance, inspections, stabilization, positioning, and other safety precautions.

Case Study: In March 2018, an employee in Concord, California, was sanding drywall while elevated on a scissor lift. The employee fell approximately 6 feet from the scissor lift to a concrete surface and was killed. The scissor lift was missing a toprail.

Key Takeaway: Even falls from a seemingly short distance can be fatal. Guardrails are the primary means of fall prevention on a scissor lift and are required to be in place and operational. The time it takes to make sure your worksite is safe is time well spent.
