Full Product Description

The Code of Practice for Selection, Management, Use, Maintenance and Examination of Hand Chain Blocks and Lever Hoists in the Offshore Environment including Sub-sea was created in response to research by the HSE/OSD into a series of incidents involving hand chain blocks and lever hoists in the offshore industry.

Despite that offshore and sub-sea environments are characterised by corrosive conditions, extremes of temperature, and frequent use of lifting equipment up to maximum capacity, the research revealed widespread use of standard industrial products not specifically designed for the rigours of marine applications. The standard of maintenance and management procedures was also found to vary widely.

Selecting lifting equipment most suited to the environment can obviously mitigate some of the additional risks inherent in offshore applications. However, good maintenance, examination, inspection, transportation, storage and control procedures are equally important. The Code addresses all these areas. Alongside offshore applications, it may also be of value in other industries characterised by arduous operating environments.
