Alfacon Solutions Scissor Lifts Mitigate Worker Injuries When Safety Considerations Implemented

Alfacon Solutions’ scissor lifts are material handling solutions designed for lifting loads in industrial environments. The popularity of scissor lift tables is to help mitigate worker injury. Back injuries caused by heavy lifting are a major cause of lost time incidents. The Alfacon scissor lift provides a convenient method of lifting materials to the desired height.

The lifts are available in a variety of configurations including stationary and mobile, with fixed, adjustable, or rotating load platforms. The range of configurations give wide-ranging versatility to scissor lifts and Alfacon Solutions can customize any scissor lift to meet customers’ specific needs.

An operator unloading heavy items from a pallet to a workstation performs repetitive, heavy lifting from the pallet to the table. The lift table can position the pallet at table height, reducing the burden on the worker. This eliminates the strain from combined vertical and horizontal plane lifting. When properly implemented, scissor lifts reduce the risk of acute injuries associated with heavy lifting.

Scissor lifts function as an easily adjustable table, allowing each worker to position the work surface at the ideal height for them. Not only can a scissor lift improve the speed of performing repetitive stacking/loading tasks, it also makes the process more ergonomic. By reducing the need for bending and twisting to accommodate the table height, a scissor lift improves process ergonomics and reduces the risk of repetitive strain type injuries.
