23 May Nifty SiOPS (Sustained Involuntary Operation Prevention System)
Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs), also known as Aerial Work Platforms, are a safe and efficient way to work in high or inaccessible areas. However, they can be dangerous if operators become trapped or crushed by out-of-sight obstructions such as beams. In this situation, operators may lean on the machine controls, resulting in continued operation and causing life-threatening injuries.
To combat this Niftylift has developed SiOPS™, which stops all machine movement if an operator is pushed against the controls. This gives operators a much needed second chance if they become trapped.
SiOPS™ is available on Niftylift MEWPs.
