3 SUB-PART H General requirements for the storage of materials Usage of rigging equipment (slings, fastenings, and attachments) for the moving of materials by hoisting Disposal of waste materials (debris, scrap, rubbish) Georgia Tech Safety and Health Consultation Program

4 GENERAL REQUIREMENTS FOR STORAGE All materials should be stored in a secure and safe way to prevent sliding, falling or collapse (take into account the maximum safe load limits of the floors per square foot) Aisles and passageways shall be kept clear and in good repair to provide for the free and safe movement of workers and the operation of material handling equipment When a difference in road or working levels exist, the employer shall ensure the safe movement of vehicles between the two levels though the use of ramps, blocking, or grading Georgia Tech Safety and Health Consultation Program

20 INSPECTION OF RIGGING EQUIPMENT FOR MATERIAL HANDLING In general : Rigging equipment shall be inspected: Each day prior to use on each shift, and As necessary during its use to ensure that it is safe Defective equipment shall be removed from service Shall not be loaded in excess of its recommended safe working load (refer for tables tables H-1 thru H-20 of subpart for specific rated capacities) Equipment shall be removed from the immediate work area when not in use Special custom design grabs, hooks, clamps, or other lifting accessories, for such units as prefabricated structures and similar materials, shall be marked to indicate the safe working loads and shall be proof-tested prior to use to 125% of their rated load GA Tech Safety and Health Consultation Program

21 INSPECTION OF RIGGING EQUIPMENT FOR MATERIAL HANDLING…cont INSPECTIONS OF SLINGS AND ALL ATTACHMENTS: Sling and all attachments shall be inspected for damage or defects by a competent person designated by the employer each day before use Damaged or defective slings shall be immediately removed from service GA Tech Safety and Health Consultation Program

22 ALLOY STEEL CHAINS Welded alloy steel chain slings shall have permanently affixed durable identification stating: size, grade, rated capacity, and sling manufacturer Any other additional attachment when used with this type of chain (such as hooks, rings, or oblong links), shall have a rated capacity at least equal to that of the chain GA Tech Safety and Health Consultation Program

26 ALLOY STEEL CHAINS cont. Alloy Steel Chains: Shall be inspected at least once a year Shall have a rated capacity (working load limit) that conforms to the values shown in table H – 1 Should not be used with job or shop hooks and links, or makeshift fasteners, formed from bolts, rods, or other such attachments The employer shall make and maintain a record of the most recent month in which each alloy steel chain sling was thoroughly inspected, and shall make such record available for examination GA Tech Safety and Health Consultation Program

27 WIRE ROPE Tables H-3 through H-14 shall be used to determine the safe working loads of various sizes and classifications of improved plow steel wire rope and wire rope slings with various types of terminals Protruding ends of strands in splices on slings and bridles shall be covered or blunted Wire rope shall not be secured by knots, except on haul back lines on scrapers An eye splice made in any wire rope shall have at least three full tucks.
