Operational Safety – Before Lifting
Lifters should only be used by operators who have been trained.
Don’t allow yourself to get distracted. Be attentive to the things you are doing.
Testing of the operation of moving lifter parts and controls at beginning of every shift.
Points to Remember:
- A crane lift can only be as effective as the communication between the person who signals with the person operating the machine.
- When hand signals are employed the person who is signaling should always be in view of the user. If the operator can’t observe the signal person in all times, it is best to use a radio to signal.
- Take your hands off your body so that the operator can read the signal more clearly.
- In the event that either person who is signaling is not sure of the signal then stop the pick immediately and discuss the signals.
- The operator must only react to the signaler. One exception to this would be an emergency call, where any person can signal.
- Always provide the instructions from the operator’s point sight, not from the point of from a distance. Make sure to confirm this with the operator.
