Preventive safety

Experience has shown that when mistakes or accidents occur during hoisting operations, it is either due to the use of incorrect working practices or because the hoisting equipment is outdated, worn or has been damaged and has not been replaced or repaired.

If there is any doubt as to the suitability of the hoisting product, it should either be replaced or an expert requested to assess its condition. Regular inspections of hoisting equipment are also important.

It should be noted that one of the innovations in Ísfell´s operations is to offer short and concise courses in the handling and use of hoisting equipment for company employees that are responsible for such work. The purpose of such training courses is to improve employee knowledge of safety aspects that relate to hoisting, to decrease accidents and minimize the damage to goods and equipment that can occur if the work is done incorrectly.
