Slings must be securely attached to the load and rigged in a manner to provide for load control to prevent slipping, sliding and/or loss of the load. A trained, qualified and knowledgeable user must determine the most appropriate method of slinging to help ensure load control and a safe lift.
The job of attaching, lifting and moving heavy loads is safety-critical and should not be attempted by anyone who is not proven competent. Anchor Industries’ Basic Rigging Training helps you put safety first.
Learners accredited with this standard will be able to conduct basic rigging practises in accordance with legislative safety standards and job requirements. This includes the inspection, selection and safe use of lifting tackle to lift, move, lower and stack loads.
Chain blocks and lever hoists are excellent devices used for heavy-duty lifting and materials handling operations. A small pulling force will be turned to a larger force to handle heavy objects, thanks to the advanced lifting mechanism.
These manual hoists come with a compact design to fit in small spaces and allow ease of rigging. They can be easily managed by workers and are efficient to operate and serve their purpose efficiently. They are commonly used in construction, maintenance, and workspaces.
