Our guidelines provide information on the requirements necessary to achieve the highest standards of quality and integrity relating to equipment, training, procedures and records.

LEEA-066 Guidance to the Safe Use of Container Lifting Lugs Version 1

Container lifting lugs are supplied in a variety of forms which offer the user a versatile and safe means of connecting a container to the lifting appliance. That is providing they are used in the correct manner and dangerous lifting practices are avoided. They are often, but must not be, confused with twist locks that are similar in construction, but have been designed solely for load restraint use, and as such are not suitable for lifting.

This has been developed as a means of offering general guidance to the variety of container lifting lugs available and their safe use.
