  1. Training

    • Anyone using an automotive lift must be fully trained on its use first. While many employers provide their own training, the same education is available through the manufacturer.


    • The owner of the lift should make sure all warning labels are in place to warn users of the serious risks involved when a lift is not used right. The area around the lift should also be clearly marked off to individuals who are not cleared to use the machine.


    • The Automotive Lift Institute, a government organization, inspects automotive lifts and certifies those that meet their safety standards. Certifying a lift increases the credibility of the business or individual owner.


    • When using a lift, place the lift supports at the appropriate location and raise the vehicle a foot off the ground first. Shake the car to make sure it is secure before raising it the rest of the way. Lower the car if adjustments to the supports are needed. Always following manufactures requirements for operating lift.


    • Make sure the vehicle doesn't exceed the maximum weight capacity for the lift, and do not override the mechanical safety features. Be sure there are no people in or around the vehicle as it is being lifted, and do not walk under the vehicle until the load-locking device is engaged.


    • Although mechanics know better than to rush when using a lift, many lift-related accidents are the result of impatience. Double check that the car is secure, spotted correctly and the area around the lift is clear before operating.
