Overhead Crane Safety – Quick Tips

A crane is a machine used for lifting and lowering a load and moving it horizontally, with the hoisting mechanism an integral part of the machine. Overhead cranes are used in many industries to move heavy and oversized objects that other material handling methods cannot. Overhead cranes have a railed support structure, known as a bridge, and a wheeled trolley that travels across the bridge horizontally. The other primary component of an overhead crane is the hoist, that’s attached to the trolley, and is used to perform the lifts. Several varieties of overhead cranes exist including gantry, semi-gantry, cantilever gantry, storage bridge and wall cranes.

Materials Handling – Chain Slings Fact Sheet

All slings (new, altered, modified, or repaired) should be inspected by a competent person before they are used in the workplace to make sure they are built to specifications, not damaged, and will be appropriate for the work being performed. For record keeping purposes it is useful if each chain has a metal tag with an identification number and load limit information. Information about the chain length and other characteristics and an inspection schedule should be recorded in a log book.

ABOUT THE WEBINAR

Our newest installment in our Best of Webinars – Summer Series features another Cranemasters classic – Hand Chain and Lever Hoist Safety. This webinar showed over 220 registrants all aspects of hand chain and lever hoist lifting devices, including why education/training is critical for the safety of workers.

Manually operated lever and chain hoists are one of the most versatile lifting devices, but they are also the most abused, forgotten about and incorrectly used tool in industry. Many tradespeople utilize these products on a regular basis, but cannot answer simple questions about their limitations, use and inspections.

This recorded webinar will cover:

  • What makes a lever or manually operated chain hoist compliant and how does the user know?
  • What are the hoist manufacturers’ inspection requirements, and do they differ?
  • Are your periodic inspections being completed by qualified personnel and are they following manufacturers
    inspection requirements? Why is this critical?
  • Why is it critical that operators read and understand the manufacturers’ instructions regarding environment,
    testing, application, and operation?
