Scissor Lift Toolbox Talk

Scissor Lift Toolbox Talk


Our scissor lift toolbox talk improve health and safety on sites where scissor lifts are used and there is a risk of incidents.



Workers can execute job activities at an elevated height thanks to Scissor Lifts. The majority of accidents and fatalities with scissor lifts are caused by employers failing to address positioning, stabilisation and fall protection.

Some of the main hazards that need to be considered when using a Scissor Lift include, but it not limited to, the following.

  • Electrocution from overhead power lines.
  • Tipping over under the wrong circumstances.
  • Being Trapped Between the Lift and an Object.
  • Falling from the Lift.

Our scissor lift toolbox talk helps keep employees safe and reduce health and safety issues in workplaces where scissor lifts are used and there is a risk of incidents due to not being operated properly.
