About Hse Regulations

Lever tools and manual hoists or chain falls are designed to lift under the power of one person. It should not take two people to pull on hand chain, or a lever arm. Never put an extender (cheater bar) on a lever tool. This is a sure sign you are overloading the hoist.

Good winches for the non-union merit shop firms for fighting back. As The Posts Carl Campanile reported last week , the Associated
