Don’t Let Inspector Clouseau Near Your Vehicle Lifts

All lift inspectors are not created equal. Considering that the safety and productivity of your technicians ride on your lifts, you want only a qualified lift inspector to make sure the equipment is functioning properly. But how do you know if you’re getting Sherlock Holmes instead of Inspector Clouseau?

Many state codes and regulations require that vehicle lifts be professionally inspected by “qualified lift inspectors” at least once a year. ALI Certified Lift Inspectors are proven qualified to inspect any manufacturer’s vehicle lifts in accordance with ANSI/ALI ALOIM-2011, the national standard covering vehicle lift operation, inspection and maintenance. There are already more ALI Certified Lift Inspectors in Rotary Lift’s RAI network than in any other manufacturer’s distribution channel. Rotary Lift is the first manufacturer to support the ALI Lift Inspector Certification Program with a certification requirement for its service network.

How to protect your shop - LockLight™

Every time a technician raises a vehicle for service on a lift, standard industry safety practices require that the lift be “lowered to locks” before starting work. To do this, the vehicle is raised to slightly above working height, and then lowered a bit until the lift locks engage. This process relieves the lift’s hydraulic pressure and places the load of the vehicle securely on mechanical safety latches. Doing so reduces the chance of the vehicle freefalling if the lift system fails.
