Man Baskets in Rigging, Demolition, and Dismantling
Rigging crews and crane operators must observe strict rules and safety regulations when employing a man bucket. The crane must be placed on firm, stable ground and riggers must perform a proof test each time a basket is installed. The basket must be hoisted with 125% of the rated load, held for five minutes, and inspected for safety.
Trial lifts are required at each setup location immediately before workers enter the basket. Riggers must load the basket with the anticipated working weight and run it through the work path to ensure that all systems are working safely and properly and there are interferences. Man basket occupants must wear a body belt or harness with a lanyard to prevent falls and should stand only on the floor of the basket. Tools, materials, and equipment must be properly distributed and secured before rigging.
