MCAA’s safety training video on how to properly inspect materials handling equipment provides tips for conducting effective pre-use inspections that can be critical to preventing workplace injuries.
The video stresses the importance of two-step inspections:
- Visually examine the equipment from the ground up
- Test the equipment functions before putting a load on it
It also walks you through the specific steps for inspecting these common pieces of equipment:
- rigging accessories (slings, chains and hooks)
Accompanying materials are also available to assist you in highlighting key training points, documenting worker training and confirming that workers understand the training concepts:
