Regular maintenance of overhead hoists is key to safety. Load testing maintenance will ensure that you know just how many pounds the overhead hoist can handle, and will ensure that it stays in good condition.dE4Henan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

2. Make sure the slings or attachments are secured properly

One of the leading causes of accidents with overhead hoists is improper securing of the slings that carry the heavy objects. If the slings aren’t properly secured, the objects can slip out, tip until they are off balance, and eventually crash to the floor below.dE4Henan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd
If the overhead hoist uses a hook latch, make sure that it’s completely closed before you start moving the overhead hoist. The attachments used for the overhead hoist must be properly sized, and they must be sitting securely in the hook saddle before you move. If not, the attachments could become disconnected — with disastrous results!dE4Henan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

3. Be sure the load is clear of obstructions

Overhead hoists must move the load straight into the air before shifting it in any lateral direction; that’s the only way to be sure that nothing is clinging to the underside of the loads. If cables, boxes, or other objects become attached, they could add extra weight to the overhead hoist.dE4Henan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd
The loads should always be lifted high enough that it will clear any obstructions. Make sure the loads will easily clear any obstructions before operating the overhead hoist.dE4Henan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

4. Be sure employees understand their risks

You should install “Overhead hoist Danger” signs around the work area, to alert employees to the fact that an overhead hoist is operating over their heads.dE4Henan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd
Workers should always stay clear of the overhead hoist, and they should never walk beneath any loads suspended in the air. Loads should never be moved over the heads of personnel, and personnel should never be lifted or transported on a overhead hoist.dE4Henan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd

5. Drive carefully and sensibly

The person responsible for managing the overhead hoist needs to be extra careful with his or her actions as it’s in operation. The operator should never move too quickly, and should be careful not to jerk the overhead hoist if it’s bearing a heavy load.dE4Henan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd
Quick reversals of direction can cause heavy loads to spill, and swinging the loads can be highly risky. Controllers of overhead hoists should always have their attention completely focused on hoist operationand anything that distracts attention off the task is to be considered extremely dangerous.dE4Henan Dongqi Machinery Co., Ltd
