Safety Notice Issued for Genie Lifts Used by Electrical Contractors in Field

Nov 06, 2017

A safety notice for Genie Lifts – used in the field by electrical contractors – has been issued.

Genie has determined that the operator's protective alarm (OPA) installed several models listed is equipped with a mounting bracket that may become loose. This may cause the OPA assembly to fall off the machine, resulting in a collision hazard.

The safety notice that was released requires installing a reinforcement structure around the OPA assembly.
