The safety operating procedures for chain cranes are important measures to ensure the normal operation of equipment and the safety of personnel. The following are some safety operating procedures for chain cranes:

Equipment inspection:

Ensure that the chain crane complies with national safety standards and has no obvious damage or deformation.

Check if the connecting parts of the chain are tight and reliable, without any looseness or corrosion.

Check the integrity and reliability of lifting equipment, straps, hooks, and ropes.

Verify the rated load of the chain crane and ensure that the working load does not exceed its rated load.

Preparation before lifting:

Remove obstacles in the work area and ensure that no personnel are in the lifting area.

Select appropriate lifting chains and lifting equipment based on the weight and shape of the lifted object.

Fix the lifting device correctly on the lifting equipment and ensure that the contact surface between the lifting device and the lifting object is flat and sturdy to prevent slipping or falling off.

Lifting operation:

Strictly follow the operating procedures of the chain crane for lifting operations and comply with various safety regulations.

To avoid sudden start or stop, the lifting object should be steadily lifted and kept relatively stable.

For lifting objects with special shapes or easy sliding, appropriate cushioning devices or auxiliary fixing devices can be used to improve safety.

Operating precautions:

Overloading lifting is prohibited, and reasonable selection should be made based on the weight of the lifted object and the load capacity of the lifting equipment.

Regularly inspect the wear and tear of the chain hoist. If any breakage, deformation, or wear exceeding the specified standards is found on the chain, it should be replaced in a timely manner.

It is prohibited to hang personnel or other non lifting objects on the chain crane.

It is prohibited to install other equipment or items on the sling or chain to avoid affecting the strength and safety of the sling and chain.

Personnel requirements:

Operators of chain cranes must undergo specialized training and hold relevant qualification certificates.

Operators must wear personal protective equipment, including helmets, safety shoes, and gloves.

Emergency response:

Understand the principles and procedures of emergency response to deal with potential malfunctions or accidents.

Master the emergency handling methods for common faults, such as broken chains, stuck chains, electrical faults, etc.


Regular maintenance and upkeep of chain cranes, including inspection, repair, and replacement of damaged components.

Follow the manufacturer's maintenance guidelines to ensure that the equipment is in good working condition.

Following the above safety operating procedures can ensure the safe operation of chain cranes and reduce the risk of accidents.
