MAG – Safety Alert – Overhead Lifting Devices – Side Pulling

Safety Alert

Side-pulling occurs when attempting to lift any load that is not located directly under the hoist’s hook.

 

Another form of side-pulling occurs when a crane operator attempts to use the bridge or trolley drives to apply force to move an object horizontally when the load is not first fully suspended on the hoist.
