Great for warehouses where large items need to loaded onto trucks or offloaded from trucks. They make impossible tasks possible, however there are safety measures that need to be followed.

Safe Procedures for Electric Jack Use

Before moving anything, know the jack's maximum lifting capacity. This information can be found on a sticker or mount on the jack. This is typically required by all jack manufacturers to ensure that the machine is not broken by excess use. Though just knowing the lifting capacity is not enough. All jacks come with a manual and documentation. Review it. There are other aspects of using a jack that can be useful down the road when using the jack. Knowing the wide range of uses will be beneficial to all those involved.

Also be sure to properly inspect the jack from time to time. Look for any broken, worn or disconnected part and report any problems to the supervisor. This way proper repairs can be completed. And what is most important in all this is to simply familiarize yourself with the jack's safety features. You never know when an emergency may happen while using the jack, so knowing how to properly use the machine and the features it has can possibly avoid a serious injury or damage to products. This also comes with a comfortable feeling when using the machine. You know what they say, practice makes perfect! Learn more about the importance of staying safe using this equipment.
