Text For Citation: 01 Item/Group: 001 Hazard: LIFTING

Section 5(a)(1) of Public Law 91-596, the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970: The employer did not furnish employment and a place of employment which were free from recognized hazards that were causing or likely to cause death or serious physical harm to employees, in that employees were exposed to: the hazard of cranes being overloaded, and/or loads being dropped, due to the absence of rated loads for "Below-the-Hook" Lifting Devices, i.e., not having been conspicuously displayed on the device(s). (a)Production coating lines, Northwest section of plant - There were no rated load markings visible on the main structure of, nor any identification plates which listed: a. the manufacturer's name and address, b. the serial number of the device, c. the lifter's weight (if over 100 lbs), d. its rated load on the "Below-the-Hook" Lifting Devices attached to overhead cranes running above and over: (1) the Phosphate Coating Dip-tank Line, and (2) the Rack Plating Dip-tank Line. [Reference Section 20-1.2.1(a) & (b) of The American Society of Mechanical Engineers Safety Standard for Below-the-Hook Lifting Devices, ASME B30.20a-1996.] Among other methods, one feasible and acceptable abatement method to correct this hazard is to: (1) stencil a clearly visible load rating on each "Below-the-Hook" lifting device, and (2) affix an identification plate to each "Below-the-Hook" lifting device which includes the information required in points a-d above.
