What is compulsory when working with a safety cage?
To work with a work cage, there are a number of safety guidelines. This is because working with a work cage involves a number of risks. First of all, to be allowed to use a work cage, a special dispensation must be given by the Government Health and Safety Inspectorate. And only workers who are properly trained are allowed to use a work cage. Here, it is important that they work how to manage the risks of working in a work cage and in addition, they must know how to communicate with the crane operator or other staff members. Below is a list of general guidelines:
- Work cage fencing should be at least 1 metre high.
- No risers such as steps, ladders or other elevations should be used in a work cage.
- You must be able to communicate so good working walkie-talkies should be provided.
- The work cage should never be loaded beyond the maximum load.
- While lifting, workers must keep their hands and arms inside the work cage.
- There should always be eye contact between at least 1 worker from the work cage and the person driving the work cage.
- Workers must wear a safety helmet and safety gloves.
What height should safety cages not exceed?
The work cages in Kruizinga's range are optimised for use with a forklift truck. The maximum working height of the cage is the sum of the cage and the user/load and the corresponding maximum working height of the forklift truck.
