Safety during Load Securing and Shifting

Rigging and lifting are very important ingredients of overall comprehensive subject of “Material Handling” which comprises securing the load, arranging for its movement like pushing, pulling, lifting, carrying and shifting from destination A to say B. Binding, securing and preparing it for movement is Rigging, while opposing gravity which pulls the load down is lifting and that is accomplished manually as well as mostly by mechanical means, with or without external power.

A Mantra to Effective & Successful Training Program

We all remember the iconic image of 11 workers sitting on a beam, 69 floors high of an under construction Empire State Building in 1931. We remember that image for many different reasons, mostly positive but from a safety perspective, we remember it for one thing and one thing only i.e. how unsafe the work practices used to be. Not just that, but safety wizards have been using that image as what ‘NOT TO DO’ at work in their safety seminars and trainings.



Force – Pushing it in a Pulled up World

In the world of safety, we all come across controversial questions like “Is Pulling the load easier than Pushing”? Or “Is pushing safer than pulling”?

At the workplace, I have always followed the mantra that heavy load should always be pushed to be moved. Now it is imperative that some readers will disagree to that conclusion and may refer to that calculation of force (as shown below) against relative motion at an angle where pulling the load is easier due to reduction of frictional force.
