SAFE HANDLING OF PLATE CLAMP
LIFTING PLATE CLAMP used for different applications should be stored in separate places.
LIFTING PLATE CLAMP should always be stored indoors never leave them exposed to the elements.
It will be more convenient if you put colored markings or a specific number of lines on each clamp according to its lifting capacity so that you can easily use the correct clamp for the weight to be lifted.
Once a week the clamps should be inspected by the person in charge of storage, according to the specified inspection standards. Be sure to have an inspection performed by the manufacturer once every two or three months. In clamps where damage is found, such as cracks or wear on the welded section, immediately stop using them regardless of the apparent size or extent of the damage.
a. operating condition
b. wear on cam or swivel jaw
c. condition of the opening
Clamps that you have stopped using for safety reasons should be clearly marked as defective and stored separately. They should never be left in the work area.
Be sure to record inspections in the log every time they are performed.
