HSE Construction: Hoists (UK) Mobile App

The HSE Construction: Hoists mobile app was designed to increase construction hoist safety and protect hoist operators and workers on the ground from harm. Hoists are typically used at construction sites to lift building materials and workers to locations that would otherwise be difficult to access on foot. In order to ensure safe operation, it's important to follow occupational safety guidelines for lifting equipment.

Instead of managing paper checklists when assessing building hoist safety, this handy app is easily accessible from any smartphone or tablet. The construction hoist safety app covers a variety of tips and checks for hoist operators that should be performed prior to using lifting equipment at construction sites. This includes proper set up of crane and hoist equipment, checking the maximum payload capacity and protecting construction worker safety.
