Mechanical Lifting Rigging Protocol: Lifting Personnel by Mechanical Lifting Equipment Mobile App

The Mechanical Lifting Rigging Protocol: Lifting Personnel by Mechanical Lifting Equipment mobile app defines requirements for the safe use of mechanical lifting equipment and requirements for personnel responsible for safe lifting and rigging operations. This protocol applies to all operated equipment, facilities and all employees. Contractors may have their own program that meets or exceeds mechanical lifting and rigging protocol. Using a crane to hoist personnel involves additional precautions to ensure proper safety measures are applied as described in 29 CFR 1926.550. The personnel hoisting rules are written in performance-oriented language that allows some flexibility in deciding how to provide the best protection for personnel. A crane shall not be used to hoist personnel, except when the erection, use, and dismantling of the conventional means of reaching the work site (e.g., personnel hoist, ladder, stairway, aerial lift, elevating work platform, or scaffold) would be more hazardous or is not possible because of structural design or work site conditions.
