I am aware that scissor lifts do not fall under the aerial lift standards (although they should) but rather under the mobile scaffold standards.

If anyone can help it would be much appreciated....I'm really counting on this one guys.
I think you should keep your pipe fitters job ... after your post on the question about employee fines ... this is not an easy profession and people die on jobsites.
