Operational Safety – Before Lifting
Lifters are only to be used by operators who have been trained.
Do not let yourself get distracted.Keep an eye on the things you are doing.
Testing the operation of lifting components and controls at the beginning of every shift.
Points to Remember:
1.A crane lift can only be as effective as the connection between the signaling person with the person operating the machine.
2.If hand signals are utilized when hand signals are used, the person using the signal must be always clearly visible for the person operating the system.If the operator can’t be able to see the person signalling throughout the day, it is best to use a radio to signal.
3.Keep your hands off your body so that the operator is able to see the signal clearly.
4.In the event that either signal person is uncertain about the signal take the pick off immediately and discuss the signals.
5.The operator must only respond to the person who signals.One exception to this would be an emergency call in which anyone is able to signal.
6.Always provide the instructions from the operator’s point view , not from the signaler’s point in the direction of the signaler’s point of view.Verify this with the operator.
