ANSI MH29.1-2012

Safety Requirements for Industrial Scissors Lifts

Mobile and stationary industrial scissors lifts raise, lower and position materials and personnel in various applications but are different from other conveyances such as aerial work platforms (AWP) and elevators. MH29.1 has been revised to better illustrate that personnel operate and may themselves be raised or lowered by industrial scissor lifts. This standard now defines dock lifts, work access lifts and lift tables as the three categories of industrial scissors lifts and identifies their differences and similarities. The responsibilities of manufacturers, users, owners and operators have been reordered, consolidated and enhanced. Lastly, the requirements within the standard have been revised where needed to ensure they are stated using mandatory language.
