Mechanical Lifting Rigging Protocol: Backhoe Lifting Requirements Mobile App
The Mechanical Lifting Rigging Protocol: Backhoe Lifting Requirements mobile app defines requirements for the safe use of mechanical lifting equipment and requirements for personnel responsible for safe lifting and rigging operations.
How does it work?
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. The operator’s manual for each machine will include a section on lifting with the backhoe. When lifting a load with the backhoe, refer to the operator’s manual for specific load ratings at different radii and boom positions.
