Safety considerations when using automated lifting gear
Whenever you use an automated lifting device such as a Genie lift it is really important to keep yourself safe, as well as your co-workers and any other people in the vicinity.
- Firstly, section off the 'NO GO' work area with cones and barriers or tape to prevent animals, bystanders or children from entering the area in which you are operating the lifting equipment.
- Always remove loose jewellery that could get caught up in machinery and wear the necessary protective gear – including practical clothing that fits snugly, safety gloves, and safety shoes / boots.
- Do not operate lifting equipment if you are ill, tired, or are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
- Carry out a risk assessment and familiarise yourself with how to use the equipment before you start work.
- Never exceed the lift's safe working load (SWL), and ensure the load is balanced and stable.
- Remain aware of the raised load whenever you are working close to ceilings / other obstacles overhead.
