Fault tree analysis and risk mitigation strategies for mine hoists
Mine hoist are an essential part of an underground mine. In addition to extracting the ore from the mine, this machine transports the miners from the surface to the various underground levels of the mine. The two main hazards to which minors in the cage are exposed to are rope severance and loss of control of the hoisting machine. In both cases, the risk is the crashing of the cage at one end of the shaft. Hoisting accident and fatalities are rare but still happen despite the use of safety catches to retain the cage in the event of rope severance. The objective of this article is to improve mine...
NF EN 13135+A1 - Appareils de levage à charge suspendue

ASME B30.9-2018 - Slings
Volume B30.9 includes provisions that apply to the fabrication, attachment, use, inspection, testing, and maintenance of slings used for load handling purposes, used in conjunction with equipment described in other volumes of the B30 Standard, except as restricted in ASME B30.12 and ASME B30.23. Slings fabricated from alloy steel chain, wire rope, metal mesh, synthetic fiber rope, synthetic webbing, and polyester fiber yarns in a protective cover(s) are addressed. Careful application of B30 safety standards will help users to comply with applicable regulations within their jurisdictions, while...
Appareils de levage. Grue de chargement
L'utilisation des appareils de levage fait l'objet de règles, touchant à la fois aux choix, aux vérifications, aux conditions d'utilisation, à la maintenance du matériel et à la formation du personnel. Ce manuel aborde précisément ces règles. Il s'adresse aux chefs d'établissements, chargés de sécurité, formateurs et bien sûr aux conducteurs eux-mêmes. Source:
Assessment of the arm locking systems of two-post vehicle lifts
Following a number of instances of vehicles falling from two-post vehicle lifts, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) became concerned that some lifts available for sale in the United Kingdom (UK) may not be fit for purpose due to inferior build quality and or design. A particular area of concern identified by HSE was the locking systems used to secure the carrying arms during lifting operations. The purpose of this research was to investigate whether a selection of typical two-post vehicle lifts forming a cross-section of what was available on the UK market (at the time the research was instigated...
Safe use of lifting equipment
This Approved Code of Practice and guidance is for those that work with any equipment provided at work or for the use of people at work, those who employ such people, those that represent them and those people who act as a competent person in the examination of lifting equipment. It sets out what you should do to comply with the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER). LOLER applies to lifting equipment and builds on the requirements of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER). This edition brings the document up to date with regulatory and other changes...
The selection, management and use of mobile elevating work platforms
This information sheet is aimed at those who select, specify, manage and operate mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs). It tells you what you should consider before selecting a MEWP to gain access to work at height and the risks that need to be assessed and managed while the MEWP is in use. Source:

Best Practice Guidelines for the Safe Use of Elevating Work Platforms in the Horticultural Industry
Horticultural mobile elevating work platforms (H/MEWP) are complex pieces of equipment that are used in hazardous conditions. As the current state of knowledge has changed around the use of this equipment these best practice guidelines are an update of the 2003 version. Since 2004, 17 serious harm accidents involving H/MEWPs have been reported to MBIE. Nine of these accidents involved tip-overs of the H/MEWP and two serious harm injuries occurred when operators fell from the work platform. In two separate accidents the operator suffered an electric shock when the H/MEWP touched power lines. In...
Mobile elevated work platform (MEWP) incident analysis - RR961
Mobile Elevated Work Platforms (MEWPs) are commonly used across all industrial sectors by a whole variety of trades, including mechanical and electrical contractors, and painters and decorators, as a safe, temporary method of working at height. There is a large range of MEWPs on the market and their controls and functionality varies depending on the category, manufacturer, model and size of machine. As their popularity and range of applications has grown, concerns have emerged about trapping/crushing accidents involving MEWPs. This report identifies accidents involving MEWPs and analyses common...
Mobile elevated work platforms (MEWPs): Phase 3 - RR960
HSE has carried out a programme of research projects focused on MEWPs, in order to provide a better understanding of some of the issues involved and to help work towards their improved and safer design and operation. An initial phase of work, reported in HSE Research Report RR961, examined the human factors involved in such accidents as a means of identifying possible solutions. The subsequent phase of work (to be published later in 2013) went on to critically evaluate MEWP control interfaces and platform environments. The work detailed in this current report is the third phase of MEWPs research...
