Not to worry about overloading as the crane has a safety factor This is the most common misconception about overhead crane which has affected many lives. Cranes are built to be safe up to the given limit. Overloading may lead to an accident. For reaching at the height lifting the crane until it hits the upper limit switch The fact is that the upper switch is designed to prevent hook assembly from colliding with the drum. But as people misguide that as the limit for lifting the crane it results in hook block and colliding with the drum which leads to the dropping of the load. It is important to burst out this myth so that people do not make the same mistake. All the hoists have secondary brakes so it is safe to work under load All the hoists have the system of primary and secondary brakes but it should still warn a worker to not work under a load. The brakes might not handle the pressure of the load at times. It is important to warn the staff to not work under a load to ensure safety. It is the responsibility of the owner to read out all the warnings and clear all the myths to the workers operators and people involved in the process.
