The safety and reliability of a car lift is a crucial element in automotive service. Coats has released a new approach to streamline processes and prioritize safety with their ALI Certified Check360 Lift Inspections, designed to ensure safety and compliance for automotive lifts. 

Getting your lift inspected is important for not only technician safety, but for the compliance of industry standards. The ANSI/ALI ALOIM National Safety Standard governs lift operation, inspection, and maintenance. 

"These technicians not only have to stand by their work, but they have to stand under it and everything that goes along with that," said Mike Kroll, district service manager for the Coats Service Network. "Being an automotive service technician is one of the very few jobs that requires a [person] to stand underneath tons of iron that's suspended in the air every day. So, it's important to know that these [technicians] are protected when it comes to lift safety."

No matter the size of your shop, lift inspection are essential for protecting those in the industry. The ALI Certified Lift Inspectors from Coats have undergone training and testing. Whether it's a 2-post, 4-post, scissor, wheel-engaging mobile, or in-ground lifts, Coats inspectors are qualified to evaluate any make or model. 

"The great thing about our certified lift inspections is that our customers are going to get a total 360 safety check of their equipment without being sold unnecessary repairs," said Kroll. "Since the inspection is being done by an unbiased third party that doesn't perform the required service on the lift, you can have confidence that we will give you our professional recommendations on any lift brand."

Coats' inspectors follow the ALI Check360 Certified Lift Inspection Program, conducting a thorough assessment encompassing structural, electrical, and mechanical components. The inspection also reviews training logs, operating instructions, and safety materials, ensuring comprehensive compliance with the ANSI/ALI ALOIM safety standard. 

Additionally, Coats' system ensures that safety inspections and certifications are managed online, ending the need for long paper processes at the dealership. Coats' proprietary database and online portal allows its users to access documentation after lift inspections are complete. 

Coats inspectors educate customers on compliance standards as well. 

"Our team is qualified to educate lift owners on what the lift safety standard is, how to be compliant with those standards, and what compliance means," said Kroll.
