Safety Alert - Improper Use of Lifting Equipment

A dead man’s sling was found to be inadequately set up, which would have failed to prevent the chain block falling if the crown hook had failed.  During the investigation it was found that the dead man slinging arrangement had been changed by a third party, after the initial set up by our Level 3 Rigger.  Any changes that are required to a lift plan should be in accordance with the relevant procedure.

Please download the Safety Alert and share this incident with your teams highlighting the fact that only competent rigging personnel are qualified to change or alter rigging as per the lift plan.
