Lifting Gear

In the selection of work equipment for lifting loads as well as accessories and load attaching devices, the loads to be handled, the grip and anchorage points, as well as attachment tackle, weather conditions as well as the type of load attachment and picking up method have to be taken into account. In addition, the stability of the work equipment and safe attachment, movement and depositing of the load must be ensured. In the event that not only loads but also workers are to be transported, lifting gear must satisfy additional criteria. See also Selection and Use of Lifting Gear.
