Shut down and pack up DEMO ONLY – LINKS HAVE BEEN DISABLED next prev start Look for any damage or defects Look at the physical appearance of the hoist before you use it. You may notice the hoist looks different to the last time you used it. For example, someone might have dropped a big pipe or tube on to the hoist. Or you might notice the handrails are bent. While loading the hoist with a pallet jack or forklift someone might have put a hole or holes in the side of the hoist. DO NOT use a damaged or defective hoist. Follow the tag out procedures, which are explained later. 2. Check the hoist

Shut down and pack up DEMO ONLY – LINKS HAVE BEEN DISABLED next prev start Roof drive station checks Drive hoist from roof and visually inspect the following: Check hoist does not operate with the roof drive station emergency stop switch on. Check mast alignment; no loose bolts or damage to mast, rack or ties. Check no damage/cuts to outer sheath. Cable running within guides if wind brace fitted. Shown below is an example of a typical daily pre-start operational check on a personnel and materials hoist. 2. Check the hoist

Shut down and pack up DEMO ONLY – LINKS HAVE BEEN DISABLED next prev start Electrical safety Check the hoist’s electrical wires before you use the hoist. The power supply should have a safety device which turns off the power when there’s a risk of electric shock. You must get electrical wires tested and tagged at least every 3 months. If an electrical wire is lying on wet ground, you must: Stop working immediatelyIsolate the powerReport the situation to a supervisor 2. Check the hoist

Shut down and pack up DEMO ONLY – LINKS HAVE BEEN DISABLED next prev start Starting the hoist This is a general start-up procedure for a hoist. Read your hoist’s operator’s manual to find out the correct start-up procedure. General start-up procedures To find out the right way to start the hoist, look in the operator’s manual. 1.Always check there’s nothing in the path of the hoist. 2.Turn the main ON/OFF power switch to ON. 2. Check the hoist

Shut down and pack up DEMO ONLY – LINKS HAVE BEEN DISABLED next prev start Check the safe working load (SWL) Hoists can lift anything from 1000 kg to 3.9 tonnes. Before you move a load find out its weight and size. Check the safe working load (SWL) on the hoist’s data plate to make sure your hoist can lift the load. New hoists have an overload system set to the SWL of the hoist. Important: if you use loading equipment (for example, a forklift or electric pallet trolley), make sure it does not exceed the SWL of the hoist. If the equipment is very heavy, there is a risk of extreme overloading. You could cause the hoist to fail or injure someone. Important: if you use loading equipment (for example, a forklift or electric pallet trolley), make sure it does not exceed the SWL of the hoist. If the equipment is very heavy, there is a risk of extreme overloading. You could cause the hoist to fail or injure someone. For example: if you get to 90 per cent of the SWL, a red light flashes. Once you reach 100 per cent of the SWL or exceed it, the red light stays on and breaks the control and safety circuits. You can’t drive the hoist until you reduce the weight. For example: if you get to 90 per cent of the SWL, a red light flashes. Once you reach 100 per cent of the SWL or exceed it, the red light stays on and breaks the control and safety circuits.

Shut down and pack up DEMO ONLY – LINKS HAVE BEEN DISABLED next prev start Lights Hoists have a number of safety lights. For example: Overload warning lights The overload warning lights tell you if you are under or over the hoist’s SWL. If the load is over 90% of the hoist’s SWL, the overload warning light will flash red. If the load weighs more than the SWL, the red light will stay on. DO NOT use the hoist if the red light is on. If you are under 90% of the SWL, all warning lights will be off. Try to keep the load under 90%. 4. Move the load
