12. Hoisting 12. HOISTING Heavy materials handled with cranes and hoisting equipment is an important part of work at a shipyard. The best way to prevent any accidents while hoisting is to get to know the right lifting methods and the right use of the lifting equipment. Hoisting operations can be performed only by persons who have received adequate training for the job. Inspection of hoisting equipment Before using any lifting equipment or lifting accessories the hoisting operator must make sure that it is intact, certified and approved for use and inspected. Lifting equipment must also have the maximum allowable load marked. Lifting equipment manufactured after 1994 must carry CE marking. Do not overload or use the lifting equipment in an incorrect manner. Overloading may cause unseen defects in the lifting equipment that may later lead to an accident. If you think there has been any overloading or any possible damage to the equipment, report it to your supervisor. It is not allowed to operate the equipment until it has been inspected. Avoid maximum loads in freezing temperatures. In freezing conditions, steel is brittle and weaker than at normal temperatures. Low temperatures can create a greater risk of equipment damage or breakage. Do not use the lifting equipment if you notice that there are defects or that it has not been inspected. Return it and report the defects or faults to your supervisor. Overloads and faults must be reported immediately.
