1. Ensure that the equipment that you are using is fit for the intended purpose.
This means that the equipment should be fitted with all the appropriate safety devices and they are all fully functioning and not over ridden.  Here at safety lifting gear all of our equipment is fitted with the appropriate safety measures. 
1 Tonne adjustable Lifting Tripod. 
2. Equipment integrity
All of your heavy lifting equipment should be well maintained and subject to detailed examinations at least every 12 months. If your lifting equipment is used to lift people, for example, tripods, and 2 man baskets, these will need to be examined at least every 6 months. A visual examination of the equipment should be carried before every use.  Furthermore, all heavy lifting equipment should be tested and certified before use, here at safety lifting gear all of our heavy lifting products are tested and certified before sale.

3. Lifting Loads.
The load that you are lifting should not exceed the Working Load Limit (WLL). This is the maximum weight that the equipment can lift safely. All the heavy lifting equipment WLL is clearly stated on our product pages. Remember, the lifting equipment is only at strong as it weakest parts. So if you are lifting a load with 4 legged chainslings that is 15 tonnes, you will need to use chainslings that can support up to 17 tonnes not 14 tonnes. 

Finally, the stability of the loads that require lifting needs to be tested before lifting. If you are lifting heavy load ensure that the load is secured to your equipment correctly and securely, also If you are lifting a load with loose parts, make sure the loose parts are secure before lifting. If this check is not carried out a potentially fatal accident could occur.
