The potential danger in the use of cranes, lifts, hoists and other lifting appliances is well known. The causes of accidents in lifting operations result from improper maintenance, non-provision of warning systems, poor upkeep of safety standards, overloading, unsafe slinging practices and other unsafe operations.
To reduce accidents resulting from equipment failure, a periodical test and certification of equipment by competent person is required
Dubai Local Order No. 61/1991 requires the Occupier/Employer to ensure that the workplace, plant and equipment are safe at all times.
