Earthing conductor or other positive earthing means that xs not require earthing through the crane wheels. Electrical Hoist limits, working and top limits.
These outline the safe use of cranes and maintenance requirements, as well as adding a new section that specifies methods to monitor design duty and introduce the concept of design working period.
It is our opinion that a load test is an important test in validating 2550.1 functions and mitigating the risk of their failure. Travel slow down limits if fitted- these are important as the buffers sized is predicated on the speed of collision. An interpretation of this is that the company or employer must ensure that they have taken all reasonable steps to make sure that personnel who are performing work on overhead cranes have been adequately trained.
New provisions are introduced to this assessment.
