Overhead cranes are suitable for specific repetitive hoisting activities. This kind of crane has wide ranging capacities. They could be used for specialized lifting jobs such as removing or installing major plant machinery.
Operators and worker need to employ safe rigging practices to be able to safely operate an overhead crane. This will require both practice and knowledge because the load has to be correctly rigged to ensure its stability when raised. Prior to beginning a lifting job, it should be determined that the crane is right for the job, with right travel, lift and capacity. The crane has to be subjected to a thorough physical and visual check before utilization. The capacity of all machinery, including the slings, hardware and rope, should never go beyond load weight capacities.
The rigger should know the correct sling for each and every lift and check slings and other rigging hardware prior to utilizing. Clear signals need to be utilized in communications with the crane operator. A signaler should be chosen for the role and signals should be agreed upon. The crane operator must follow directions only from the chosen person. If a wired or remote controller is being utilized, the operator must be trained in all its functions.
Prior to whichever lifting begins, the path of the load should be cleared of all obstructions and a warning sign must be issued to guarantee the safety of the staff. Pedestrian are not under any circumstance allowed to walk under the lift loads. The crane hoist needs to be centered over the load prior to lifting in order to prevent swinging. The safety catch must be closed immediately after sliding the sling entirely onto the lifting hook. Sling legs that are not utilized should be secured so they do not drag. Never leave loose materials on a load being lifted. Watch that fingers and hands are clear when slack is taken out of a sling. Step clear of the danger zone before the lift is carried out.
