At Mohawk Lifts, safety come first. Below are just some of the
examples of how Mohawk is looking out for your safety.
6 Principles for Safe Lifting
You’d never drive a vehicle that hadn’t had the brakes inspected in years. You would never use a jack without also using a jack stand. These basic and common sense principles apply to vehicle lifts in your maintenance facility and daily inspections are part of your job.
LIFT SAFETY LOCKS
SYSTEM I ALL POSITION MECHANICAL LOCKS
Mohawk’s all position mechanical locks in both columns engage the full length of travel, beginning at 5” off the floor and engaging every 3” thereafter to full lifting height.

ALI / ETL CERTIFICATION MEMBER
In 1992, ALI selected Intertek Testing Services, then known as ETL Testing Laboratories, as its strategic partner in developing and administering the first independently verified product certification program for the automotive lift industry. The resulting program launched in 1993 and the first “ALI Directory of Certified Lifts” was published in October of the same year.
In addition to administering and validating the ALI Certification Program, Intertek is one of two independent laboratories recognized by ALI and nationally accredited to perform evaluations in accordance with ANSI/UL 201. This approach to product certification allows for “one-stop shopping” for lift manufacturers, and more specifically, Intertek offers ALI’s Certification Program participants:
- Electrical safety listing services for all regions within North America (Nationally Recognized Electrical Listing Mark);
- Testing and preparation for CE Marking (European Technical File Services); and
- Consolidated testing and follow-up inspections. This streamlines the process of getting the product to market.
- Administration and testing evaluations supporting the ALI program are coordinated from the 160,000 square-foot Intertek facility in Cortland, New York. ALI/ETL witness testing is performed by the Certification Program Administrator’s staff at the manufacturer’s facility regardless of country of origin.
