23 May Nifty SiOPS (Sustained Involuntary Operation Prevention System)
Mobile Elevating Work Platforms offer a safe and efficient way to work at height. However, occasionally operators can become trapped between the machine and surrounding objects forcing their torso onto the controls. In extreme cases, this can result in sustained involuntary operation of the machine’s controls which can inadvertently move the machine and operator towards the obstacle, worsening the injuries caused.
SiOPS™ eliminates sustained involuntary operation by interrupting all machine movement if an operator is pushed against the cage controls.
SiOPS™ is available on Niftylift MEWPs and addresses a known contributing factor in trapping incidents and gives the operator a vital second chance.
