The safety specifications for boom lifts and scissor lifts puts the burden for safe manlift operation on the user. You are responsible for knowing how to safely utilize the lift even if you just rent the equipment for a day. The most basic safety features on the machinery are safety decals and the operating manual. These show essential information about the maintenance, operating procedures and safety machinery.
A new model of manlift will come along with the needed decals in place and operating guidebooks. The operating handbook must be found on the equipment at all times. If you are purchasing a used lift, it is essential to ensure that the instruction manual is included and that essential decals haven't been painted over. The restraints which prevent operators from falling and the guardrails are other vital safety features. These are standard and mandatory on all kinds of lifts.
