Electric hoists, especially those that use thin steel wire ropes, have some common safety hazards during use. These hidden dangers mainly involve the safety of operators, the stability of equipment, and the safety of the surrounding environment. The following is a detailed analysis of these security risks:

1、 Safety hazards for operators

Mechanical damage:

Operators who do not wear personal protective equipment according to the rules are prone to mechanical injury incidents. For example, body parts such as hands and feet may be scratched or pinched by exposed wire ropes or equipment components.

Electric shock risk:

The failure or failure to install the power leakage protector according to regulations, aging or damage of the circuit can easily lead to electric shock accidents. If there is electric leakage when operators come into contact with equipment or surrounding metal components, they may suffer from electric shock injuries.

2、 Safety hazards of equipment stability

Wire rope issue:

Aging, corrosion, deformation, or cracking of steel wire ropes are common safety hazards for electric hoists. These issues may cause the steel wire rope to break when carrying heavy objects, leading to high-altitude falling accidents.

Specifically, for electric hoists that use thin steel wire ropes, their load-bearing capacity is relatively limited and they are more susceptible to wear and corrosion, therefore requiring more frequent inspection and maintenance.

Overweight use:

The user is unable to correctly judge the weight of the goods or intentionally ignores the rated carrying capacity of the electric hoist, resulting in overweight use. This will increase the load on the equipment, damage the body, or cause accidents.

Power cord issue:

Aging or damage to the power cord can lead to poor circuit contact, ignition, and other accidents. This may not only damage the equipment, but also lead to serious consequences such as fires.

3、 Safety hazards in the surrounding environment

Operational risks in low light environments:

Using electric hoists in low light environments can limit the operator's visibility, which may lead to misjudgment of position, angle, and distance, increasing operational risks. In addition, it may also increase the risk of collision and misoperation.

Space limitations:

When using electric hoists in confined spaces, such as basements, tunnels, etc., special attention should be paid to the stability of the equipment and the operating space. Avoid equipment damage or personal injury caused by insufficient space.

4、 Other safety hazards

Insufficient maintenance:

Regular maintenance and upkeep of electric hoists is an important measure to ensure their safe operation. However, in practical use, due to various reasons (such as negligence, insufficient funds, etc.), it may lead to insufficient maintenance and increase safety hazards.
