New DVD training aid for Scissor Lift operators


Following the successful launch of the Boom Lifts Safety DVD, Blue Slate Videos has produced a second DVD in the MEWPs Safety Series for scissor lifts. This DVD is a comprehensive training aid for everyone involved in training scissor lift operators.

Although more stable than Boom Lifts, there are still many hazards involved with operating Scissor Lifts. Amongst these are: being trapped against a roof structure; the machine tipping over; falling from the platform. So this DVD ‘MEWPs Safety – Scissor Lifts’ can only be a welcome addition to the safety training aids that can be used by everyone involved in the training of operators. The DVD is also suitable for use by company Health & Safety Managers as a refresher session for existing operators.

safetyThe DVD has been created specifically for trainers, and complements all recognised training courses. The information is presented in a clear, logical and concise fashion, which can be easily absorbed by would-be operators. It has 10 chapters to suit individual training needs, alternatively there’s a ‘Play All’ function to automatically play from start to finish. Topics covered include: PPE, familiarisation, pre-operation checks, emergency lowering, safe operation, planning the task, shutdown and general safety.

‘This is the second DVD in our series for MEWPs safety and we hope this one will also be welcomed by trainers’. said Bob Hylton, Film Director at Blue Slate Videos. ‘Trainers may also be interested to learn we’re currently running a special offer for anyone wishing to purchase both the Boom Lifts and the Scissor Lifts DVDs,’ he added.

The DVD is available from Blue Slate Videos website: priced £99 including P&P.
