Niftylifts' SiOPS (Sustained Involuntary Operation Prevention System)

19 July 2010

Mobile Elevating Work Platforms offer a safe and efficient way to work at height. Occasionally however, 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. Niftylift says its SiOPS system 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.
