FAQs

Does OSHA require a harness in a scissor lift?

  • Fall protection equipment is required in any situation where a worker's fall risk is greater than four feet. Construction regulations require fall protection equipment for heights greater than six feet.

Are scissor lifts considered to be mobile scaffolding by OSHA?

  • According to OSHA, a scissor lift is considered mobile scaffolding where the platform moves only vertically. An aerial lift is classified as a vehicle-mounted platform with the ability to move vertically and horizontally.

How do I move a scissor lift?

  • Scissor lifts use a control box with selector dials to move vertically and horizontally. Control boxes will include an emergency stop button and a joy stick with left and right steering capabilities.
