How to use a scissor lift table

The device is based on a hydraulic mechanism which enables a smooth and seamless process when lowering or elevating objects. The size and capacity of each table can be adjusted regarding to individual needs.

You place an object or pallet directly on the table scissor lift and the scissor lift raises the table to the right working height for the employee which depends on the height of the employee. After this the employee is now able to work with the product at an ergonomic height avoiding bending and twisting while working.

The use of a scissor lift can vary depending on the type purchased. A work platform  can raise the employee in stead of the product, a goods lift can transport products between levels and a loading bay  can adjust the height in terms of emptying a lorry easily.

A scissor lift is an investment

The costs associated with musculoskeletal injuries are a great sum in the long term.

According to the numbers for 2021/2022 provided by the Health and Safety Executive, issued by the United Kingdom’s government, total costs of workplace related injuries were estimated to be £20.7 billion ( 1 ).

There are risk factors causing MSDs in many types of work, so you should think about the risks of various tasks, depending on the work you do:

  • bending, crouching or stoopin
  • lifting heavy or bulky load
  • pushing, pulling or dragging heavy load
  • stretching, twisting and reaching
  • repetitive work, particularly using the same hand or arm action
  • sustained or excessive force
  • carrying out a task for a long time
  • work with display screen equipment
  • working with hand-held power tools for a long time
  • driving heavy vehicles, long-distance driving or driving over rough ground ( 2 )

SWL means Safe Working Load and have to do with how you use your lifting table or scissor lift. The drawing below shows a more detailed description.

With an even load like figure a. the lifting table can handle 100% of the capacity. If your lifting table has a capacity of 2000 kg. you can make use of the entire capacity of 2000 kg.

If you only load the table on one end of the table the capacity will be adjusted downwards by 50% (figure b) and you will be able to lift 1000 kg. When the table is only loaded on the side the capacity is reduced by 33% and the lifting table can then lift approximately 666 kg (figure c).
