The 8 Basic Guidelines of Heavy Equipment Use:

  1. Know how to properly operate the equipment you are using.
  2. Do not use heavy machinery when you are drowsy, intoxicated, or taking prescription medication that may affect your performance.
  3. Use only equipment that is appropriate for the work to be done.
  4. Inspect your equipment to ensure that it is in good working condition before beginning a job. In addition, ensure that regular inspections and maintenance are conducted as appropriate.
  5. Do not stress or overload your equipment.
  6. Replace missing or worn parts with genuine Tandemloc parts in order to be certain lifter strength and function is adequate and safe.
  7. Make sure all pins and lanyards are fully inserted and connected as well as bolts and nuts fully engaged to avoid dropping the load.
  8. Make sure you read the specifications and use information before using the equipment.

When in doubt, call Tandemloc for assistance.
