Haulotte Straight Man Lifts
There are several kinds of articulating lifts. The selection is quite extensive. There is a man lift designed pretty much for every different type of use. There are various types of articulating booms available which can pivot 360 degrees. Some lifts are designed to be built to mount onto a trailer, onto the back of a pickup truck or other flatbed trucks. Some models are self-propelled and controlled by the operator. Other manufactures make lifts to handle underground tunnels and hazardous environments like grain-processing facilities and petro-chemical plants. These specialized lifts could work in a place where there is a danger of explosive gases or dust particles in regular operations.
How to Utilize the Manlift
The manlift is specifically made to raise an individual upon a platform, reaching to a high up area. These kinds of machines are used for example to raise a construction worker who is trying to reach a building's second level. These kinds of industrial equipment can be extremely handy for doing jobs which are out of reach. Like with any type of equipment, the safety risks must be taken into account.
Before using the lift, workers have to undergo correct training. If the training is not done correctly, it is a much greater possibility for an accident to happen. Any ignorance on how to use the machine properly can be very dangerous for both the operator and anyone close by.
The lift needs to be placed on a level surface in order for it not to accidentally tip over and cause a fall. Steep slopes should be avoided that exceed any limits specified by the manufacturer. For extra safety, it is recommended that the brakes are set, even if the equipment is resting on a level slope.
