Baremotion assumes no responsibility for the use or misapplication of any product it sells. Rigging, lifting products and safety gear is only intended to be used by competent trained professionals. All products are sold with the understanding that the purchaser is familiar with their safe use and correct application. Responsibility for design and use decisions rests with the user.
Products should be used in strict accordance with all industry and OSHA standards. At no time should a product be used beyond its Working Load Limits. All gear should be thoroughly inspected before each and every use. Worn or unsafe rigging and safety gear should never be used.
All gear should be thoroughly inspected before each and every use. Regular inspections for visible damage, cracks, wear, elongation, rust, etc. Keep inspection records
Worn or unsafe never be used. Destroy, rather than discard, items that have been deemed defective. They might be used by someone not aware of the hazard of the defect.
At no time should a product be used beyond its Working Load Limits. Avoid side loading. Working load limit will not apply if product has been welded or otherwise modified.
Match components properly. Make certain that components such as hooks, links, shackles, etc., used with wire rope (or chain or cordage), are of suitable material and strength to provide adequate safety protection. Attachments must be properly installed and must have a work load limit at least equal to the products with which they are used.
Avoid shock loads. Avoid impacting, jerking, or swinging of load — working load limit will not apply.
Inspect products regularly.
Keep out from under a raised load.
Keep out from under a raised load. Take notice of the recommendation from the National Safety Council Accident Prevention manual concerning all lifting operations:
All employees working with cranes or hoists or assisting in hooking or arranging a load should be instructed to keep out from under the load. From a safety standpoint, one factor is paramount: Conduct all lifting operations in such a manner, that if there were an equipment failure, no personnel would be injured. This means keep out from under a raised load and keep out of the line of force of any load.
