Personnel not touching a suspended load (with any part of the body) that is connected to a mechanical lifting device is Hands‐free lifting. PSC has a complete range of tools to enable working safely with suspended loads.
Hands-Free or Hands-off Policy allows personnel to guide, and manoeuvre loads without taking their hands into situations that can lead to pinch, crush or impact injuries or "caught between' situations. There are hundreds of operations on a rig related to material movement. Moving equipment from one location to another is generally included in the day's pre-tour meetings and toolbox talks. Equipment can either be moved manually or using mechanised equipment. The cargo handling procedure lays down how the cargo needs to be handled and hand placement is also discussed. Company's adopting the hands- free policies clearly lay this down in their procedures.
Is it really possible to work with a Hands-free policy? Yes, its 100% possible.
Personnel not touching a suspended load (with any part of the body) that is connected to a mechanical lifting device is Hands‐free lifting. That is any load that is being lifted or before the load is properly set down and all potential energy is released.
Why hands-free lifting?
The objective of hands‐ free lifting is to eliminate hand and finger injuries by removing them from the energy source – and avoid all caught between, struck‐by and struck‐against incidents.
Hands-Free or Hands-off Policy is being used by several drilling contractors today. PSC exports its Hands-Free tools to over 20 countries worldwide and has over a dozen oil and gas companies in India using the hands-free tools. (www.pschandsfree.com)
