The main issue with lifting heavy equipment is making sure, that it is safe and that the operator and everyone involved are not in any risk. The responsibility of securing the whole operation is on behalf of the employer in charge because he needs to equip the employees with the right machinery. Although the employer is liable for the preparation, the employees are the ones working on the spot with the lifting equipment hence the ones held responsible for the course of events. Therefore, it is essential to carry out training courses preparing the workers to handle any lifting-related task they will approach in their professional life.
If the task of heavy lifting is carried out incorrectly the consequences might be overwhelming as both the worker and the lifting equipment may suffer a lot of damage. The results may include loss of health or even life and a tremendous amount of money spend on replacing both manpower and machinery. That is why all the lifting tables from Translyft as standard are equipped with safety features such as safety trip bars that instantly stops the lifting table from lowering, protecting the workers from clamping accidents, and mechanical locks for securing the table during service and maintenance. The many safety features that may be included in the heavy lifting equipment offered by Translyft can certainly help ensure the well-being of the employees.
