Invest in Your Future: Invest in Lift Safety
Vehicle repair gets more demanding every day. Those of you on the front lines working with equipment to maintain and repair vehicles can never afford to “take it easy.” Not when you are entrusted with the safety of your customers’ vehicles, your employees and yourself.
This 16-page supplement provides an overview of the hot topics in vehicle lifting that technicians, fleet maintenance managers and shop owners need to be aware of in order to maintain bay safety and productivity. Needless to say, safety is a major consideration when lifting a vehicle weighing thousands of pounds and then working under it.
At the conclusion of the inspection, the lift inspector will provide a written inspection certificate for each lift and will apply an ALI Annual Lift Inspection Label to each lift that passes inspection. This label includes the inspector’s unique identification number and the date, making it easy for code enforcement officials to quickly ascertain when a lift was last inspected successfully. The labels also serve as a convenient reminder of when a lift is due for its annual inspection.
Safety Starts with You
In addition to annual lift inspections conducted by qualified lift inspectors, most lift manufacturers recommend that lift operators themselves inspect their lifts on a more frequent basis. Recommendations vary from daily to monthly to quarterly, depending on lift style, frequency of use and environment. Check the owner’s manual for the manufacturer’s recommendations.
