Safety

Material Handling; Cranes, Hoists, etc.

Cranes, hoists and lifts are used in construction and maintenance work to lift objects and people safely from ground level to a working level. The ability of this equipment to easily move heavy objects necessitates training and caution to ensure lifting of people and objects is done safely to prevent accident or injury.

EH&S provides training in conjunction with those organizations who use lifts such as JLGs or scissor lifts in the course of their work. The office can also provide guidance on safe use and required checks for this equipment.

 

For information, contact Ron Hamilton at (937) 775-3810.
