When you need to lift a heavy load, you need a hoist. The most basic hoist uses wire rope or chain coiled around a winding drum. The principle of the hoist goes back to ancient times – even Roman gladiators and wild animals benefited from hoists to ride up to the arena level of the Roman Coliseum.
Two key causes of accidents with today’s hoists are overloading and loads not safely rigged before being hoisted. Pay attention to the hoist’s lifting capacity and never let the total weight of the load exceed it.
