LIFT AND SLING SAFETY

Fri, 05 February 2016

There is probably no more hazardous an area at on-shore maritime facilities such as boatyards, repair facilities and marinas than that around lifts and slings.  While these areas do not necessarily have the potential for catastrophic incidents such as those where petroleum products are used (fueling or engine maintenance) or hazardous and explosive materials stored or employed, they are an area to which managers and owners of facilities using slings and lifts need to attend.  An average of 26 employees on construction sites die each year from improper use of aerial slings.  While similar statistics for marine facilities are not available there are equivalent dangers in our port, boat/shipyard and marina facilities.  While death is always a concern, more often failure to properly use this type of equipment or neglecting to follow proper procedures can result in significant personal injuries.  While litigation is always a concern, lost time and the potential disability of a valued employee can have significant business implications.
