Manual, air, and electric chain hoists are essential components of overhead handling equipment because they allow you to move freely hanging, heavy goods upwards for placing or transit, and then lower them for accurate placement.
Lifts are completely interchangeable among different kinds of overhead hoisting systems since they are provided independently from a monorail, overhead crane, or workplace crane. They can also be outfitted with magnets, slings, hooks, grippers, beams, or vacuum cups, among others, under-the-hook lifting methods.
Electric chain hoists improve an operation’s usability by freeing personnel from the effort of lifting large objects repeatedly with hands. Also, it helps in enhancing handling performance and effectiveness. Organizations that employ hoists in their operations, on the other hand, have a variety of requirements that are crucial to the proper handling of this equipment.
Here’s a checklist of “Safety tips” for hoisting. Considering these tips will help to improve the equipment’s consistency and safety, as well as lower the potential for injury for the workforce who use a hoist in combination with another overhead hoist or work near it.
Say YES to—
Say NO to—
- 1. Allowing unskilled personnel to use the hoist or any other overhead lifting equipment is not a good idea.
- 2. Don’t try to use a hoist that’s been marked as out of service.
- 3. Allowing an operator to lift a load to a hoist without sufficient training can be dangerous.
- 4. Do not try and raise a load that surpasses the hoist’s capacity requirement.
- 5. To evaluate a load, do not use the hoisting load restriction or warning system.
- 6. Limit switches should not be used as ordinary operational stops; they should only be used in an emergency.
- 7. Use a hoist with a chain or a wire rope that is not bent, tangled, broken, or worn.
