The Aichi scissor lift meets OSHA height regulations for your general maintenance. REQUEST QUOTE

When general maintenance tasks require elevation, the quickest and easiest solution is to grab a ladder. However, a ladder has its limitations and falls continue to be a top-reported OSHA injury.

OSHA Height Regulations

What are the OSHA height regulations?

For general industry workplaces, OSHA requires fall protection be provided to employees when elevations reach 4 ft. Because a ladder does not have a tie-off for personal protective equipment (PPE), it is no longer a solution for tasks at or above this elevation.

Aichi Scissor Lift

Aichi, a Toyota Forklift company, manufactures a scissor lift ideal for general maintenance tasks such as changing light bulbs, painting and installing drywall. Key features of the equipment include:

  • AC Drive: with no motor brushes required for operation, the Aichi scissor lift requires less maintenance and provides longer working cycles.
  • Load Capacity: the product line offers 5 models, for various width options. Ranging from 500 lbs – 1,000 lbs capacity, multiple people can be held on the scissor lift platform.
  • Joystick Control: the joystick design is operator-friendly, with easy-to-read BDI and error indicators.
  • AGM Batteries: included with the purchase of an Aichi scissor lift, the AGM battery does not require watering which cuts down on maintenance time.
  • Control Unit: the control unit is removable to be placed on the scissor lift platform where needed, or operated by another user as the base of the equipment.
