Balancing the Load
ensure a level lift the crane hook should be verticalabove the centre of gravity of the load. If in doubt, lift just clear
of the ground. If the load tilts, land the load and re-position the sling.
Always have a prepared
landing site ready to receive the load. Never lower the load onto the chain. If necessary use timber battens to rest the load
on so that the chain may be easily pulled from under the load.
