Large platform profile scissor lift instruction & safety notes
The operator and the maintenance fitter are required to observe the prescriptions of safety regulation in force in the country of installation of the lift.
Furthermore, the operator and maintenance fitter must:
-Always work in the stations specified and illustrated in this manual;
-Never remove or deactivate the guards and mechanical, electrical, or other types of safety devices;
-Read the safety notices placed on the machine and the safety information in this manual.
In the manual all safety notices are shown as follows:
Warning: indicates following operations that are unsafe and can cause minor injury to persons and damage the lift, the vehicle or other property.
Risk of electric shock: a specific safety notice placed on the lift in areas where the risk of electric shock is particularly high.
Risk and protection devices
For optimal personal safety and safety of vehicles, observe the following regulations:
-Do not enter the safety and safety of vehicles is being lifted.
-Be sure to lift only approved vehicles, never exceed the specified carrying capacity, maximum height, and projection (vehicle length and width);
-Make sure that there is no person on the platforms during up and down movements and during standing
General risks for lifting or descent
The following safety equipments are used to protect over loading or the possibility of engine failure.
In the condition of over loading, the over-falling valve will open and directly return oil to the oil tank.
Each bottom of oil cylinder is equipped with antiknock and locked valve(optional). When the oil pipe is burst in the circuit of hydraulic pressure, the relevant antiknock and locked valve will work and limit the speediness of platform.
Safety tooth and gear module are parts which guarantee the safety of personnel beneath the machine in failure condition of other protections.
So make sure the integrity of gear module and that the safety tooth has occluded completely.
There is nothing abnormal should be left on the safety modules to prevent safety gear from occlude normally.
Risk for extrusion
During up and down operations, personnel leave the said area without following the rule and instruction.
During up and down operations, no person is admitted to work beneath the movable parts of the lift, should work in the safe zone.
Risk of impact
Before the operator begins up and down movements, make sure that there are no personnel inside the danger zone. When, due to operational reasons, the lift is stopped at relatively low elevations (lower than 1.75m above the ground) personnel must be careful to avoid impact with parts of the machine not marked with special colors.
Risk of falling (vehicle)
This hazard may arise in the case of incorrect positioning of the vehicle on the platforms, overweight of the vehicle, or in the case of vehicles of dimensions that are not compatible with the capacity of the lift.
When the platform is being tested, the vehicle engine can not be turned on.
There is nothing should be placed on the lift-lowering area and the movable parts of the lift.
Risk of slipping
The floor caused by lubricant contamination of around the lift. The area beneath and immediately surrounding the lift and also the platforms must be kept clean. Remove any oil spills immediately.
Risk of electric shock
Risk of electric shock in areas of insulated and shattered electric equipments
Do not use jets of water, steam solvents or paint next to the lift, and take special care to keep such substances clear of the electrical control panel.
Risks related to appropriate lighting
The operator and the maintenance fitter must be able to assure that all the areas of the lift are properly and uniformly illuminate compliance with the laws in force in the place of installation.
During up and down operations, the operator should continually observe the lift and can operate it only in the position of operator. When lifting and lowering the vehicle, the cushion needs being put in the bottom of chassis.
The handling of safety devices is strictly forbidden. Never exceed the maximum carrying capacity of the lift, make sure the vehicles to be lifted have no load.
It is therefore essential to adhere scrupulously to all regulations regarding use, maintenance and safety contained in this manual.
