Scissor Lift Training & Safety Course

In fact, 32% of dry Waller/taper fatal accidents occurred using either supported or suspended scaffolding.

While the most shocking news is that the main root cause of most of these falls is happening due to some kind of unsafe scaffolding.

Considering the facts in the scaffold category, the average death is 36 %.

Every year, with the increasing number of the versatility of manually propelled mobile scaffolds the ratio of falls lead by scissor and aerial lift, is relatively large. Considering in the general construction field painters and drywallers suffer more than 17% of the fatal falls involving the mobile elevator work activity compared to 3% of aerial deaths. The Scissor lift leads more fatalities than to aerial lift because of huge demand in the painting and drywall market.

The ratio can be reduced by the proper Scissor lift training among workers.
