Gary’s Safety Tips

Hey everyone, today we’re going to talk about an important topic – the dangers and safety recommendations when working with a genie lift. Genie lifts, also known as aerial work platforms, are essential equipment for a variety of construction and maintenance tasks. But just like any piece of machinery, they can be dangerous if not used properly. So let’s dive in and talk about what you need to know to stay safe while working with a genie lift.

First things first – always read the manufacturer’s instructions and safety guidelines before operating a genie lift. These guidelines will provide you with important information on how to use the lift safely and effectively. Don’t skip this step – it could mean the difference between life and death.

Next, make sure you’re properly trained to operate a genie lift. This means taking a training course that covers the safe use of the lift and obtaining the necessary certification. Don’t assume that just because you’ve operated other heavy machinery, you’ll automatically know how to operate a genie lift. These lifts have their own unique features and safety requirements that you need to be aware of.

When setting up the genie lift, make sure the ground is level and stable. If the ground is uneven, use stabilising devices such as outriggers or jacks to keep the lift stable. You should also avoid operating the lift in high winds or other inclement weather conditions that could make it unstable.

Always inspect the lift before each use. This means checking the tires, brakes, and other components to make sure they’re in good working order. If you notice any issues or damage, don’t use the lift until it’s been repaired or replaced.

When using the genie lift, make sure the platform is fully lowered before moving it. Never move the lift with the platform raised, as this can cause the lift to tip over. You should also avoid overloading the platform – always check the manufacturer’s guidelines for the maximum weight capacity of the lift.

If you’re working near power lines or other electrical hazards, make sure the lift is properly grounded and never touch the lift or any part of the equipment if you’re standing on the ground. If you’re working on the platform, make sure you stay at least ten feet away from power lines at all times.

If you’re working at a height, always wear a harness and secure it to the platform using a lanyard. This will prevent you from falling off the platform if you lose your balance or the lift tips over. You should also make sure you’re wearing appropriate personal protective equipment, such as a hard hat and safety glasses, to protect yourself from falling debris or other hazards.

Finally, never use a genie lift for anything other than its intended purpose. This means avoiding using the lift to move heavy loads or as a substitute for a ladder. Genie lifts are designed for specific tasks and using them improperly can be extremely dangerous.

In conclusion, working with a genie lift can be a safe and effective way to complete a variety of construction and maintenance tasks. But it’s important to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines, obtain the necessary training and certification, and take the necessary safety precautions to prevent accidents and injuries. So be smart, stay safe, and keep on grinding!
