As with most lifts, the heavier the weight is the greater will be the chance of doing this. So the lift requires some technique, a surprising amount. The push press requires a press-like hand position at the start, not a jerk-like one. The hands must fully grip the bar, no finger tip-only contact. This is needed for the drive. An important part of the lift is the transition from leg drive to press-out. This occurs at about the same place as the sticking point in a strict press. The better the leg drive, the higher that transition point will be, and the easier the lock-out will be due to better triceps leverage. So drive those legs.
