MATERIALS HANDLING AND STORAGE Handling Material (General) Servicing Multi-Piece and Single-Piece Rim Wheels Powered Industrial Trucks Overhead and Gantry Cranes Crawler, Locomotive, and Truck Cranes Derricks Helicopters.


Introduction Most injuries in industry occur while employees move materials. In every day operations, workers handle, transport, and store materials. They may do so by hand, manually operated equipment, or power operated equipment. This module specifies the materials handling and storage procedures developed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to reduce injuries resulting from mishandling or improper storage.

Objectives : 

Objectives At the end of this Materials Handling and Storage module, you should be able to: Identify general requirements for handling materials Identify servicing requirements for single-piece and multi-piece rim wheels Identify operation and safety requirements for powered industrial trucks Identify inspection, design, and operation requirements for overhead and gantry cranes Identify inspection, design, and operation requirements for crawler, locomotive, and truck cranes Identify design and operation requirements for derricks Identify communication, load handling, and protective requirements for helicopters.

Handling Materials (General) : 

Handling Materials (General) The Handling Materials (General) section, based on 1910.176, describes basic requirements that apply to any situation where equipment must be stored. Where mechanical handling equipment is used, sufficient safe clearance shall be allowed for aisles, at loading docks, through doorways, and whenever turns or passage must be made. Permanent aisles and passageways shall be appropriately marked.

General : 

General Storage of material shall not create a hazard. All stored materials stacked in tiers shall be stacked, blocked, interlocked, and limited in height so that they are secure against sliding or collapse. Storage areas shall be kept free from accumulation of materials that constitute hazards from tripping, fire, explosion, or pest harborage. Vegetation control will be exercised when necessary.

Multi-Piece and Single-Piece Rim Wheels: 

Multi-Piece and Single-Piece Rim Wheels This section is based on 29 CFR 1910.177. The standard describes requirements for employees working with either multi-piece or single-piece rim wheel structures. This section covers the topics listed to the left. In 1984, OSHA amended the safety standard for the servicing of multi-piece rim wheels to include requirements for the safe servicing of single-piece rim wheels used on large trucks, trailers, buses, and off-road machines.

Multi-Piece and Single-Piece Rim Wheels: 

Multi-Piece and Single-Piece Rim Wheels Training for all tire servicing employees Utilization of industry-accepted procedures that minimize the potential for employee injury Use of proper equipment such as clip-on chucks, restraining devices or barriers to retain the wheel components in the event of an incident during the inflation of tires Use of compatible components.

Multi-Piece and Single-Piece Rim Wheels : 

Multi-Piece and Single-Piece Rim Wheels A rim wheel is the component assembly of a wheel, tire, tube, and other components. There are two types of rim wheels: Single-Piece Rim Wheels Multi-Piece Rim Wheels. A single-piece wheel is the component of the assembly used to hold the tire, form part of the air chamber (with tubeless tires), and provide the means of attachment of the assembly to the vehicle axle. A multi-piece wheel is a vehicle wheel consisting of two or more parts, one of which is a side or locking ring that holds the tire and other components on the rim wheel by interlocking the components when the tire is inflated. The standard does not apply to the servicing of rim wheels utilizing automobile tires or truck tires designated "light trucks (LT)."

Hazards : 

Hazards Single-piece rim wheels react differently than multi-piece rim wheels in accidents involving a release of pressurized air. In a multi-piece rim wheel accident, the wheel components separate and are released from the rim wheel with violent force. The severity of the hazard is related not only to the air pressure but also to the air volume. Single-piece rim wheel accidents occur when the pressurized air contained in the tire is released suddenly by a bead breaking or the bead slipping over the rim flange.

Hazards : 

Hazards An employee in close proximity and within the rim wheel trajectory can be hurled across the room. A release of pressurized air can also propel the rim wheel in any potential path that a rim wheel component may travel during an explosive separation, or the area into which the airblast may be released. All employees working with rim wheels require training for these hazards.
