Lifting heavy objects

Only trained and qualified personnel are allowed to lift heavy objects. The following precautions must be taken when you lift heavy objects:

  • Do not stand or walk under the heavy objects when they are lifted.

  • Check whether the required tools are complete and intact.

  • Ensure that the lifting tools are firmly fixed on a wall or have enough load-bearing capacity.

  • If a rope is used, ensure that the angle between two sides of the rope is no larger than 90°.

  • Use simple and clear commands while speaking to personnel. Avoid any confusion that can cause accidents and damage to personnel or materials.
