“Lifting It Right” is a guide to the safe operation and basic maintenance of the seven types of vehicle lifts commonly used in North America: inground lifts, two-post lifts, multi-post runway lifts, parallelogram lifts, scissors lifts, low-/mid-rise lifts and mobile columns. It is a companion to and reinforces the safe lifting practices presented in ALI’s Lifting It Right online course, the organization says.


Working with lift manufacturers, the ALI team expanded the manual to provide the latest guidance on lift safety best practices. ALI experts wrote new content including a glossary, as well as information on lift capacity, lift inspection, load-holding devices, swing arm restraints and being a safe lift operator. 

The new digital edition has the same content as the print version, but available on computers, phones and tablets.

“Lifting It Right” is available from ALI member manufacturers and ALI Certified Lift Inspectors, as well as through the ALI store and ALI’s Amazon store. Quantity discounts are available for the print version, as well as options for bundling the print and digital manual together or with the purchase of single or subscription access to ALI’s Lifting It Right online lift safety training course.
