Using lifting and rigging equipment is dangerous, and safety is the most important thing. The following are some safety precautions to keep in mind when using lifting and rigging equipment:
Conduct regular equipment inspection: Lifting and rigging equipment should be inspected regularly to identify any signs of wear, damage, or defects. Any damaged or defective equipment should be stopped immediately and repaired or replaced.
Use appropriate working equipment: Use appropriate equipment to lift the load. The equipment should also be rated for lifting loads and should not be overloaded.
Fix the loads correctly: Before lifting, fix the loads correctly to prevent them from slipping or falling. The load should be located in the center of the lifting equipment and properly balanced.
Follow manufacturer's instructions and industry standards: Lifting and rigging equipment should be used according to the manufacturer's instructions and industry standards to ensure safety and effectiveness.
Provide appropriate training: Workers should receive appropriate training on the safe use of lifting and rigging equipment, including safety procedures, equipment operation, and hazard identification.
Establish clear communication: Clear communication between workers is very important to ensure safe lifting operations. All workers involved in lifting operations should be clear about their roles and responsibilities and communicate clearly with each other.
Designate a special person to be responsible for lifting operation: Designate a special person to be responsible for lifting operation to ensure safe and effective operation. The person in charge should have received the necessary training and have experience in supervising operations and dealing with any problems that arise.
