Safety

Every day, there are many different lifting operations carried out in various industries. Lifting is always associated with risk and there are therefore high demands on both the user and the supplier of lifting products. Although the products are approved and certified, improper handling and misapplication of the products can create dangerous situations.

Safe lifting starts with choosing the right equipment. Lifting products are strongly regulated by European Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, which sets high demands on suppliers of lifting products concerning:

• Requirements on product performance
• Product marking
• Technical product documentation
• CE-marking
• Traceability of the products through the value chain

To prevent accidents and injuries associated with lifting, the Swedish Work Environment Authority (Arbetsmiljöverket) has developed regulations, which the employer is required to be aware of and to follow. Read more about this in:

• Use of work equipment (AFS 2006:04)
• Use of lifting devices and lifting accessories (AFS 2006:6)

• the load to be handled
• the grip points or lifting eyes to be used
• prevailing weather conditions and
• the way in which the load is strapped or slung.

Lifting accessories which are not dismantled after use shall be clearly marked so as to inform the user of the characteristics of the equipment.
