Scissor Lift Certification

What Is a Mobile Elevated Work Platform?

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) recently updated their aerial lift terminology, which has affected how they interpret aerial lifts. ANSI has replaced the term aerial lift with Mobile Elevated Work Platform, or MEWP. According to ANSI, a MEWP is any motorized work platform that is designed to assist an employee in safely accomplishing an at-height task.

What Is an Aerial Lift?

Aerial lifts are defined by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as working platforms mounted on vehicles that have the ability to move vertically or horizontally. Aerial lifts can also entirely rotate around a vertical axis in some cases. People are often confused about scissor lifts due to the stricter qualifications surrounding the term aerial lifts.

Where Does the Scissor Lift Fit?

It is essential to be aware that OSHA does not consider a scissor lift an aerial lift. In fact, OSHA defines a scissor lift as a portable scaffold with a vertically raised work platform. This means that scissor lifts are covered by OSHA's scaffolding guidelines and requirements.

On the other hand, scissor lifts are classified as a Mobile Elevated Work Platform under ANSI. This means that ANSI's standards and regulations for MEWPs will include scissor lifts.

Your employer will make the ultimate decision in deciding which standards your workplace will adhere to. If you are unsure of which regulations you are supposed to follow, reach out to your designated supervisor or manager for more information.

What Is a Scissor Lift?

Now that you have a basic understanding of where the scissor lift fits in regards to safety regulations, we will discuss what a scissor lift really is.

Scissor lifts are popular for manufacturing and industrial operations because they have broad platforms that can accommodate both employees and materials. They provide a safe and dependable environment for workers to carry out any at-height tasks.

What makes the scissor lift an essential tool is its ability to extend up and then collapse and become compact enough to be stored away, making it a true competitor to the traditional ladder.

What Are Scissor Lifts Used For?

Scissor lifts are preferable to boom lifts and other types of aerial platforms when it comes to certain tasks. They are suitable for inside tasks since they are lightweight and easy to operate, especially if the project simply requires up-and-down mobility.

Scissor lifts can work outside on uneven or sloped terrain. A rough terrain scissor lift is designed to work on rough or uneven surfaces in order to safely raise workers and materials in ways that a ladder could not. Here are some other common jobs that scissor lifts are used for:

  • Indoor maintenance where ceilings are higher
  • Warehouse organization, management, and general maintenance where accessing tall shelves needs to be done safely
  • Sign maintenance where a larger platform is needed for safe work
  • Working on sloped surfaces or uneven terrain
  • Working in tight, outdoor spaces where an up-down lifting motion is needed

OSHA Standards for Scissor Lifts

Employers must analyze the worksite to identify any potential hazards before selecting the proper equipment for the task. Employers who use scissor lifts must examine and implement effective fall safety, stability, and position controls. Employers are also responsible for developing and implementing an accident prevention program.

Safe scissor lift operations include maintaining the equipment properly, following the manufacturer's instructions, adhering to the rules and procedures that are provided through the required safety training, and always using the proper personal protective equipment (PPE).

Before operating a scissor lift, OSHA requires that you receive sufficient safety training. Here at Hard Hat Construction Safety Training, our scissor lift course includes all you need to know about operating a scissor lift safely. All of the necessary standards are thoroughly covered as well. Among the required safety topics are:

  • How to perform daily checks of the scissor lift to ensure it is in good working order and free of wear and damage.
  • How to use and wear PPE, which may include a hard hat and a safety harness.
  • How to connect fall protection to an appropriate anchor point on the work platform.
  • Employees are not permitted to use a ladder to climb higher on the work platform, nor are they permitted to use the guardrails as a ladder to step up to a higher position on the scissor lift.
  • Employees are not permitted to lean over the guardrails, as this may jeopardize the scissor lift's stability.
  • Employees are not permitted to utilize the ground controls unless authorized by the employee in the bucket or in the event of an emergency.

Accident Prevention Program

An accident prevention program (APP) is a document that is updated as needed to address newly identified hazards and safety concerns. The program's aspects are extensive, in-depth, and cover a wide range of occupational health and safety issues. It is intended to decrease workplace accidents and injuries.

For an APP regarding scissor lift operations, there should be four different parts. These four parts are as follows:

Part 1: Implement & Maintain an APP

Employees are required by OSHA to establish and maintain an accident prevention program that supports compliance with regulations. They do not directly state that the program must be written, but it is far more difficult to demonstrate the existence of an acceptable program if it is not documented.

Part 2: Frequent & Consistent Inspections

A competent person plays a crucial role in ensuring construction site safety. OSHA requires a process for frequent and regular inspections to be completed by a competent person to ensure the job site, materials, and equipment are safe and functional. The process that is implemented is also required to be included in the APP.

Part 3: Compliant Machinery, Tools, & Equipment

Everything that is utilized on a jobsite must meet safety standards. If it is not compliant, it may not be used. Regulations require your employer to remove them from service using any of the following methods:

  • Tagging them out
  • Physical locking to render them inoperable
  • Removing them from the workplace

Part 4: Training & Experience

OSHA requires that only employees who have had proper training or experience operate machinery or equipment. This training requirement is one of the most commonly disregarded laws in the construction industry. Every employee's training and/or experience should be documented.

How To Become a Scissor Lift Operator?

Learning how to use a scissor lift is simpler than you would think. Despite this, there are still several requirements you must meet before you will be able to operate one. As stated previously, scissor lift operators are required by OSHA to successfully complete a scissor lift safety training course that will demonstrate that they are capable of operating the lift in a safe and reliable way.

Once the training course is completed, employees must demonstrate to their employer, or a designated supervisor, what they have learned and that they are able to operate the scissor lift safely and efficiently.

Scissor Lift Certification

Every employer with scissor lift operators is required by law to give OSHA-compliant training, instruction, and hands-on evaluation to guarantee every employee is up to date on the newest OSHA safety regulations and can operate scissor lifts efficiently.

Once an employee receives their certification, the certification is valid for three years after the issue date. Once the three years is up, the employee will need to take a refresher course or retake a scissor lift safety training course.

Why Do I Need a Safety Training Course?

Every year, many workers are injured or killed while using scissor lifts. Falls from the elevated platform, objects falling from the lifts, tipovers, ejections from the lift platform, structural failures and collapses, electric shock, entanglement dangers, contact with objects, and contact with ceilings and other overhead objects are all potential hazards.

Our courses demonstrate the functionality and safety of scissor lifts. The goal of this course is to increase safety for operators and everyone else on the job site. Begin this essential training right away!

FAQ's

FAQ's

What does each online class cover?

Generally speaking, each course covers the following: 1. Overview of the Course/Introduction to the Equipment 2. Anatomy, including pre-shift inspections 3. Stability Principles 4. Common Hazards/Accident Profiles 5. Safe Operation 6. Rigging and Hand Signals (for crane courses only).

How long is the course?

Trainees go at their own pace, but in general each class (including the exam) takes anywhere from 2 to 2.5 hours. We recommend planning for two or more so you don’t end up rushing through the exam.

Are these courses OSHA-compliant?

Yes, all of our Hard Hat Training online courses were built and continue to be updated by our trainers and inspectors using OSHA and ANSI guidelines. But it is important to understand that by OSHA-compliant, we mean it follows to the best of our ability the best practices and safety principles put forth by OSHA. In an online format, it is not possible to cover every code for every situation or hazard across every industry. For this reason, our safety training solutions are tools to further knowledge and help employers train and/or certify their crew. But just because a course or program is OSHA-compliant it does not necessarily mean a company as a whole will be compliant or avoid citation if OSHA were to audit them. There is so much more that goes into collective company compliance with OSHA. For example, workers need to be observed applying in the field what they learned in the classroom. This observation/practical exam should be done by trainers, supervisors, or other designated competent persons. Whether you use our training kits or online courses, we provide guides to help employers do this. Other things that need to be done for ultimate compliance may include but are not limited to: addressing with your crew any gaps in the training or additional hazards or principles specific to your work situation; creating, training on, and enforcing and abiding by written safety programs (also known as plans or procedures); and performing regular inspections and risk assessments.

Are the e-learning classes up-to-date with OSHA standards?

Yes, all of our Hard Hat Training online courses are up-to-date with the latest OSHA standards. As standards change, we make changes to the courses. If you purchase any of our online courses outright, though, it will then be your responsibility to update the course in accordance with any changes to the standard.

Does this course certify or qualify me?

There is a lot of confusion among operators and even companies about what it means to be certified or qualified. Simply put, no, a course does not certify anyone, only an employer does. Or, in other words, because it is the employer’s responsibility to make sure an employee is properly trained, it is also his or her responsibility to say when the employee is “certified,” “qualified,” or “competent.” The online courses, like our training kits on CD or USB Drive or even live training via a 3rd party, is just a tool to help them in doing so.

According to OSHA, all operators of heavy equipment must receive operator training. Proper training must include a classroom portion including a written exam, as well as a practical hands-on portion/exam wherein the operator is observed operating the machine. The online course satisfies the required classroom portion of the training. Upon completion of the course and written exam, the safety administrator of the company will receive a checklist which can be used to observe the trainee on the machine. When done successfully, the administrator signs the bottom of the form. At this point, unless further training is required by your employer, you have done everything required by OSHA to be considered by your employer as “certified,” “qualified,” or “competent.”

If I pass this class and exam can I take my certification and get a job anywhere?

See “Does this course certify me?” This will depend on your employer. Remember, it is their responsibility to see that you are trained and if there is ever an accident, it is they who will have to prove to OSHA that they trained you sufficiently. Because of this, while some smaller businesses may simply accept your certificate and a copy of your test, more often than not they will require you to go through their own training program. This is their right to do so. It is their further responsibility to train you in accordance with the job, site, equipment, etc. Having said that, we have fielded many calls from potential employers who wanted to learn more about the classroom portion of the training we offered. After hearing our explanation, they accepted the online class as satisfying the classroom portion of the required training and proceeded to do their own practical.

How long is the training good for?

OSHA standards dictate that safety certification needs to be completed at least once every three years. Since no online course can provide “certification,” these courses will combine with your onsite practical training to fulfill OSHA’s requirements for up to three years. Having said that, refresher training is required sooner if an employee changes sites or jobs, is asked to operate a different type of the equipment, is involved in a near-miss or accident, or is observed operating the machine in a dangerous manner.

Will I get a certificate?

Yes, upon successful completion of the course and exam, you will have immediate electronic access to your test, a certificate, and a checklist you can use for the practical hands-on portion of the training. Simply print them off.

How many people can use this course? Can I play it for several employees at the same time?

When a course is assigned to an employee, only that employee can take the course. There are many reasons for this, but most importantly the course is designed to train that one employee per OSHA regulations. Also, there is a final written exam at the end that will be linked to the trainee assigned. OSHA requires proof of training and if multiple people were to sit in on that one course, they would not get credit for taking it.

Can I customize the classes?

Your business’s learning portal can be completely customized for your employees including colors and logo. Additionally, if you purchase our courses outright to be used on your own company LMS (learning management system), you also get the right to rebuild them and customize them to meet your own needs. If you have Adobe Captivate, which we use to build our courses, customization is even easier.

Are SCORM/Tin Can options available for use on our own company LMS?

All of our online courses are designed to be SCORM-compatible and can be easily uploaded to your company’s current SCORM-friendly LMS. You can license their use annually or purchase them outright. Licensing or purchasing them outright does not, however, give you the right to resell or distribute our courses to parties other than those whom you are training.

If we buy or license the eLearning courses for use on our own LMS, can you customize them for us?

Yes, we have done and continue to do this for clients. Pricing depends on the extent of customization requested. Please contact us for a quote.

Can I resell these trainings?

We do have resale options available. Click here to contact us regarding resale opportunities.
