Man Lift & Scissor Lift Inspections


As an trusted partner to the lift industry, IIA has decades of experience performing inspections that help ensure the structural integrity of aerial work platforms.

Our skilled and certified personnel perform visual and non-destructive testing (NDT) on welds and critical components on man lifts, scissor lifts, personnel lifts and other aerial work platforms. We are experts in the use of non-destructive methods such as magnetic particle inspection, liquid penetrant, and ultrasonic testing to find flaws not easily visible to the naked eye.

Our expert inspections will help keep your personnel safe and your lift devices in compliance with applicable standards in the U.S. and Canada.
