Know the WEIGHT of the load or ask your

supervisor:

• Establish the weight or;

• Use alternative methods to weigh the load

• Research the weight of the object

• If in doubt ask your supervisor or other

competent person

• Is the weight balanced and is the centre of

gravity known?

What is the APPLICATION (single or multi leg,

basket or choke hitch)?

The application is dependent on the following

considerations:

• Shape of the load - round or square

• Physical dimensions of the load (length-width-height)

• Dedicated lifting points or not

• Headroom clearance (if multi leg refer to the lifting

limitations chart below and/or the Bullivants Load

Calculator)

• External surfaces

• Material density

• Environment

• Lifting path

• Landing pad
