Make sure you: Tell other people there is an emergency Tell people what the emergency is Tell people when to exit unsafe areas. 2. Communicate clearly

Shut down and pack up DEMO ONLY – LINKS HAVE BEEN DISABLED next prev start Start the crane Look in the users manual or manufacturers instructions to find out the right way to start the crane. General start-up procedures Listen for unusual or strange noises and vibration or shaking in the non-slewing mobile crane when you start it. Strange noises could mean the crane has a fault and you should have the crane inspected to find the cause of the fault. Strange noises 3. Check the crane

Shut down and pack up DEMO ONLY – LINKS HAVE BEEN DISABLED next prev start Do the pre-operational checks Once you start your non-slewing mobile crane you need to make further checks. Post-start checks include: Gauges Warning devices/systems Hazard controlsAll controls and motions to full capability/extension (to make sure the crane is safe to use). Horn/lights/drive indicator Warning devices/systems Hazard controlsBrakes Check the hoist limit switch/cut-out to avoid double-blocking. Double-blocking occurs when the hook/block assembly is dragged into the head sheaves. This can cause a serious incident. 3. Check the crane

Shut down and pack up DEMO ONLY – LINKS HAVE BEEN DISABLED next prev start Check ground conditions Check that the ground can support the crane and the load before you set up. Ground conditions can affect the need for outriggers and packing. Talk to an expert You may have to talk to an expert to assess the ground for you. An engineers report can tell you if the ground is safe to work on and suitable for supporting the crane. Wet ground If it rains the ground may be soft and unstable for heavy vehicles and machinery. If you think the ground is too soft or wet ask a competent person to test the ground before you set up the crane. 4. Plan the lift

Shut down and pack up DEMO ONLY – LINKS HAVE BEEN DISABLED next prev start Move the load safely You are mobiling (moving) a load. Before you move the load, think about: How the crane will get in and out of the work area Hazards and obstructions in your path and work area The weight and size of loadsBoom angle/lengthBoom/jib deflection When you are mobiling the crane (driving with a load attached), remember to: Move as slowly as possible – at creep speed Accelerate (speed up) and brake slowly to stop load swing Keep the boom/jib length short to keep the crane well-balanced Keep the load close to the ground to keep the crane well-balanced. 6. Do the lift

Shut down and pack up DEMO ONLY – LINKS HAVE BEEN DISABLED next prev start Shut down and pack up This part of the book is about how to shut down, pack up and put away equipment. It covers stowing and securing equipment, using motion locks, shutting down the crane and post-operational checks. 7. Shut down and pack up

Shut down and pack up DEMO ONLY – LINKS HAVE BEEN DISABLED next prev start Stow and secure outriggers/stabilisers Most non-slewing cranes dont use outriggers and packing. Sometimes when using a telehandler you will use outriggers. When you have finished with the crane, stow and secure the outriggers and packing safely for travel. To stow and secure outriggers and packing you should: 1. Retract the outriggers using the controls in the cabin. 2. Pick up and clean packing. 3. Stow and tie down the packing in its place on the crane. 7. Shut down and pack up
