Machine Movers: Using them Safely

Machine movers are items of lifting equipment that make lifting easier and safer. On the other hand, if they are not used correctly, they can actually make it more dangerous and difficult to complete a lift. There are some general things you should take note of when lifting and moving an object with machine lifters, so that you can remain safe and get the most out of the movers.

The most important factor is checking the lifting capacity. It is essential that this is adhered to as if a load is lifted that is too big, the machine mover might not be able to hold it and it might fall, causing damage and injury. It is also very important to ensure the load is positioned evenly on the machine mover and is not going to fall off. It should be secured with a strap where needed if it is bulky or unbalanced.
