Safety Reminder

Postby Shagoneer » Fri Aug 03, 2018 9:32 pm

Figured I would share today’s experience at work and remind everyone to be safe.

Today we were moving a pretty beefy electric motor around (probably weighs close to 1000 including the housing the base). We were moving it using a the eyebolts it shipped to us with, and a boom on the end of a forklift. While moving it into position at one point it was directly above me as I helped line up bolt holes and guide it into its groove.

When we had it bolted in I took out the eye bolts and found most of them looked like this.Image

So here’s your reminder to be safe, check everything’s condition, and keep McMaster Carr bookmarked.

My thinking is that it was, but the metal stretched.

Then they were way undersized for the lift. Not good since the vendor provided them.

My boss has a thing for getting the cheap Chinese version of everything so I’m not surprised by it

When doing lifts like that I always make sure I have a route out, and have even been known to get irate with someone who gets in it
