Automotive Lift Institute releases digital versions of lift safety standards and training materials

Sept. 20, 2022
Standards for lift operation, inspection, maintenance, and service are now available digitally.

Automotive Lift Institute (ALI) is now offering digital versions of North American vehicle lift safety standards and training materials.

The digital versions of ANSI/ALI ALOIM: 2020, the standard governing lift operation, inspection, and maintenance, and ANSI/ALI ALIS: 2022, the standard outlining requirements for lift installation and service, can now be found at alongside the latest second edition Lifting It Right lift safety manual e-book.

“It should come as no surprise that lift installers, inspectors, owners and operators across the U.S., Canada, and other regions, including Australia, have been asking for ALI’s lift safety materials in a digital format,” said R.W. “Bob” O’Gorman, ALI president, in a press release. “Through several years of work by ALI staff and as a result of technology advancements, we have developed a digital rights management (DRM) solution that makes it easy for our customers to access these documents virtually anywhere at any time while protecting our intellectual property and copyrights.”

The digital versions mirror the same content and layout as their print counterparts, and be accessed via any device, such as a computer, tablet, or smartphone. 

As an electronic version, users can:

  • Access the documents immediately after purchase.
  • Make notes, highlight, underline, circle, and otherwise annotate their personal copy.
  • Customize the view by increasing or decreasing magnification, choosing between dark mode and light mode, or going full screen.
  • Quickly find what they’re looking for within the document using the keyword search.

According to ALI, ANSI/ALI ALOIM is written primarily for employers, lift owners, and inspectors. It describes employer responsibilities regarding lift operator training, lift inspection and maintenance; covers lift inspection and repair maintenance procedures; and outlines qualifications, training and responsibilities of lift operators, lift inspectors and maintenance personnel.

ANSI/ALI ALIS provides guidance to lift installers and service technicians.
