EEPL BASIC OPERATIONAL CHARACTERISTICS Ability to lift and lower Ability to swing load around an axis of rotation Adjustable boom length Adjustable boom angles Ability to travel about the job site under their own power
EEPL INSPECTION Site / Earth (Soil) Crane Slings Hooks Wire Ropes D Shackles Manila & PP Ropes
EEPL HAZARDS Over Head Electrical Power lines Tip over Over Load (beyond the rated capacity) Inadequate slings to the job & insecure
EEPL SAFE LIFTING Always use the crane manufacturers load chart provided for each crane Be sure about the weight of each load or calculate Never use visual signs of tipping as an indicator of lift capacity Ensure proper outrigger deployment and make sure outrigger pads are supported on firm.
EEPL SAFE LIFTING Avoid hoisting or moving suspended loads over workers and others within the crane swing radius. Barricade the swing radius area to keep unauthorised person entering. Never work under a suspended load Watch the signs of problems during each lift
EEPL SAFE LIFTING Always check the overhead power line and other obstructions. Work vertical plump at all times. Only move the load when you can see it, If you cant see it use a competent signaler. Feel load before you lift it avoid snatching load up dumping them down.
EEPL SAFE LIFTING Insist on slinging and do not lift unsafe loads When parking your crane at the end of your work period keep well clear of roads. Never leave your crane with loads suspended on hook.
EEPL SAFE LIFTING Leave the crane with The jib well up and cap locked in the force and apt position The brakes on The hook well clear of people and traffic All the control in off position The key removed
CRITICAL LIFT EEPL Means lift that exceeds 75 percent of the rated capacity of the crane or Requires use of more than one crane or winch
