How to avoid overhead crane accidents

February 12, 2016 4:01 pm

An analysis on avoiding overhead crane accidents and safety measures taken to avoid such accidents
  An accident is an undesirable event that results in an injury or even causes loss of life if it’s fatal. Most accidents don’t just happen; they are often the result of a string of unfortunate events, including slipups, oversight, mechanical failure, and even bad luck. One of the best ways to avoid overhead crane accidents is to foresee the many safety considerations for crane operations in a planned and thoughtful way.
Safety should be a way of life, a behaviour that needs to be ingrained in the culture of the organisation at all levels and locations.
“ElectroMech follows various safety measures for its cranes to avoid any accident. A variety of cranes, transfer trolley and a scissor lift within ElectroMech plant ensures that it can transfer loads of any type, thus ensuring none of its workers carry heavy loads,” says Tushar Mehendale, Managing Director, ElectroMech Material Handling Systems India Pvt Ltd.
Smoke detectors and proper evacuation routes marked for emergencies make ElectroMech shop floor a safe environment to work in.
ElectroMech ensures that the load swing is restricted to absolute minimum levels and associated accidents. ElectroMech provides proper material handling training to avoid accidents at workplace.
“With EOT cranes it is extremely critical; the operator has the complete equipment understanding, hands-on training, and an alert mind. It is extremely important to not compromise on operating instructions while working with EOT cranes. Compromising on safe working practices is compromising on safety; while we always focus on inbuilt safety in the equipment design it is equally important to ensure equipment’s regular health check through the skilled technicians,” says Abhijeet Patil, Assistant General Manager – Aftermarket, Demag – Terex India Pvt Ltd.
