Disadvantages of Utilizing Scissor Lifts
A scissor lift is a particular type of mobile scaffolding. This wheel-mounted machinery gives power to a work platform that moves down and up. The lift can be powered by electricity, propane, diesel or gas. Scissor lifts are characterized by a variety of scissor-like joints which lift the machinery by collapsing and expanding. Numerous safety features are built into modern scissor lifts, specially the newer models. Like with any safety features, they might not be able to guarantee safety and several features could sometimes malfunction or they can be overridden by operators manually.

Inadvertent Elevation
Construction workers commonly use scissor lifts to work at higher heights. Workers could raise the work platform to just below the ceiling level. The problem with accidental elevation could happen if the workers accidentally bump into the elevation controls while working. In the ceiling scenario, the controls could be accidentally activated and the platform could rise up and inadvertently crush them into the ceiling.

Electrocution
Another way workers need to be very careful is to be sure they are familiar with the environment they are in while utilizing the equipment so as to make sure they don't unintentionally electrocute themselves. If, for example, an operator makes direct contact with or accidentally touches an electrical conductor or an induction field, terrible outcome can happen.

Lateral Loads
While utilizing a scissor lift, it is important 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 among the possible issues which could take place if the whole lift overturns. This situation occurs if a heavy material or tool like for example a concrete slab that hangs over the scissor lift platform's side, causing the entire machine to become immediately unbalanced and really susceptible to dangerously tipping over.
