Scissor lifts can be a huge help on a construction site, performing tasks in hard to reach places but they can be dangerous if the proper precautions aren’t taken.
Common accidents that occur with scissor lifts are collapses or tip-overs, falls and electrocutions.
The most recent incident involved a 25 year old worker on a construction site in Sydney.
The man was operating the scissor lift when the accident occurred and he was rushed to Royal North Shore Hospital in a critical condition for treatment.
It is believed emergency services found the man unconscious after becoming trapped by his neck. Source: https://www.smh.com.au/national/nsw/man-critical-after-scissor-lift-incident-on-eastwood-construction-site-20180413-p4z9iy.html
