Our project team in Salalah conducted Suspended Load refresher training to highlight what is a significant cause of fatal and other serious injury within the construction, civil engineering and other associated sectors.
Most similar campaigns would focus on the issues associated with loads lifted by cranes, however the team expanded upon this by mentioning lifting operations using Excavators, Telehandlers and other equipment with booms. After all the laws of gravity dictate “that what goes up must come down”. That quote was attributed to Sir Isaac Newton, the famous Physicist, many years ago, however that logic must be applied every day in the way we plan, manage and monitor our activities.
The campaign featured the issues of pre-planning, keeping people away by physical means, personal responsibility in respecting barriers as well as situational awareness which is sometimes overlooked.
A good effort from the site team and if required they would be happy to share the material they produced.
