Snorkel debuted two new machines for the North American market last week at The Rental Show.

The Snorkel S3970RT scissor lift, which was previewed at Bauma, is now ANSI certified and available to order in the United States. Built on Snorkel’s SRT chassis, this compact RT scissor has a maximum platform height of 37'8" but measures only 5'10" wide and 10'10" long. With a lift capacity of 771 lbs. and a roll-out deck extension for extra reach, the S3970RT is ideal for working in confined spaces.

The schedule for the SAF-T Conference is taking shape, offering a variety of thought-provoking topics centered around safely using powered access, developing fall protection programs, and training access platform users through an array of technologies. Hosted by Maximum Capacity Media on July 24, 2013, in Nashville, Tenn., the live powered access safety event will take place in conjunction with the Scaffold & Access Industry Association’s Annual Convention at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel.


CTE has released a video that explains the various steps for the proper use of the harnesses, starting with the first information regarding the fit (almost like a jacket), then it analyzes the various points of locking legs, fixing belts and connecting the cord, so to be ready to work safely at height. In this sense, we need to be careful for any simple everyday things, because they need always a lot of attention.
