Lifting of objects generally takes place at construction sites, shipyards, factories and other industrial situations such as offloading with a forklift truck, containers at a warehouse or at a commercial area. Good practice and correct lifting methods can move large objects efficiently, safely and reduce manual handling operations. Incorrect lifting methods however, can lead to major accidents and fatalities. Every year, incorrect lifting procedures cause injuries, loss of work time and property. People, machinery, loads, methods and the work environment, are all important factors for correct lifting. Provided that enough safety measures are fully implemented, lifting accidents can be reduced. The process of carrying out correct and safe lifting operations involves a range of requirements which must be considered during the planning of any lifting operation.
