Disadvantages of Using Scissor Lifts
Scissor lifts are a type of "mobile scaffolding", with a wheel-mounted machine that gives power to a work platform that moves up and down. The lift can be powered by electricity, propane, gas or diesel. Scissor lifts are characterized by a variety of scissor-like joints that lift the equipment by expanding and collapsing. Many safety features are built into scissor lifts nowadays, specially the newer models. Like with any safety features, they may not be able to guarantee safety and several features could sometimes malfunction or they could be overridden by operators manually.

Accidental Elevation
Normally, construction workers use scissor lifts to work on ceilings or on higher aspects of the jobsite. The workers would have to lift the platforms just to right beneath the level of the ceiling. The issue with accidental elevation could happen if the workers inadvertently bump into the elevation controls when working. In the ceiling scenario, the controls might be accidentally activated and the platform could rise up and inadvertently crush them into the ceiling.

Employees need to be extremely cautious, making certain they are fully aware of their surroundings. This will ensure they don't inadvertently electrocute themselves. If, for instance, the operator makes direct contact with or inadvertently touches an induction field or an electrical conductor, tragic outcome could happen.

Lateral Loads
When utilizing a scissor lift, it is essential know the loading limitations in the guidebook of your scissor lift. Very terrible consequences could take place if the platform is mis-loaded. A lateral-load is amongst the possible issues which could happen if the whole lift overturns. This situation occurs if a heavy tool or material such as a concrete slab which hangs over the scissor lift platform's side, causing the entire equipment to become unbalanced right away and really prone to tipping over dangerously.
