American Work Platform Training, the North American subsidiary of the International Powered Access Federation has released a new safety video that demonstrates how daily pre-start inspections should be performed, in accordance with ANSI standards.
The pre-start inspection video can be viewed and downloaded at the Publications/Film section of www.awpt.org. There are separate versions for scissorlifts and boomlifts, each lasting 13 minutes. The videos are targeted primarily at U.S. and Canadian audiences.
The video shows how AWPs, in accordance with ANSI standards, should be given a visual inspection and functional test before use each day or at the beginning of each shift, including operating and emergency controls; safety devices; air, hydraulic and fuel systems leaks; loose or missing parts; tirese and wheels; placards and warnings; outriggers and stabilizers; guardrail systems; and any items specified by the manufacturer.
