Demand for Certified Lift Inspectors Grows
Responsible lift owners have their lifts inspected annually by qualified lift inspectors as required by the ANSI National Standard covering vehicle lift operation, inspection, and maintenance (ANSI/ALI ALOIM: 2008). As OSHA and other governmental health and safety officers step up enforcement of inspection requirements, the demand for qualified lift inspectors is growing. The Automotive Lift Institute (ALI) Lift Inspector Certification Program is the only program in North America that independently tests and certifies vehicle lift inspectors. It provides peace of mind to customers that when they hire a Certified Lift Inspector, he or she is qualified to inspect their lifts.
Lift inspectors conduct critical performance evaluations on the most important piece of life safety equipment in the service bay. Technicians are relying on YOU to identify whether or not their lifts are safe to use. Their safety is riding on it. The ALI Lift Inspector Certification Program is open to anyone with at least twelve months experience as a vehicle lift inspector. Certified Lift Inspector Candidates receive extensive training materials, including: • Examination Handbook • Lift Inspector Course Training Manual • All relevant ANSI/ALI standards • Manuals covering inspection and maintenance of leaf chain, wire rope and power transmission roller chains • A Guide for Hose Failure Analysis • Lifting It Right DVD and safety manual package. Candidates participate in workshops, a written pre-course exam, a final exam and documented practical experience. For current pricing and availability, visit www.autolift.org or call (607) 756-7775.
“Lifting it right is fixing it right.” -Richard Petty
