Skyjack Safety
A scissor lift is a particular piece of industrial machinery which is utilized for "positioning personnel, their equipment and their tools," according to Skyjack. Anyone who is preparing to operate this kind of machinery must familiarize themselves with the suggested operational and safety measures recommended by the manufacturer in order to stay safe prior to attempting to utilize this particular equipment. It can be devastating to any bystanders and the operator themselves resulting in severe injuries if the safety recommendations are not followed.

Area
In the best case scenario, the scissor lift would be used on completely level ground. Prior to driving a scissor lift over a certain terrain, the area has to be inspected and cleared of any debris. In order to lessen the risks of the scissor lift tipping over and probably causing the driver to fall from his seat. It is recommended to avoid steep grades or holes while operating. Bystanders must also remain aware and avoid the operating scissor lift so as to make sure that they do not get run over.

Inspection
The user needs to carefully inspect all vital components of the machinery prior to attempting to use a scissor lift. A functional test done while the lift is retracted allows the operator to see if all components are correctly working before the task is initiated. It is better to perform a daily check on this machinery prior to the shift starting and some places even want an inspection to occur at the end of the shift also. Various companies have various policies in place to maintain safety.

Checking the tires must be part of the inspection. These parts obviously add to the scissor lift's movability and also provide the machinery with a solid foundation. A worn or faulty tire could blow and throw the operator from their location on top of scissor lift.
