TITLE
Lifting Eye Failure
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN
United Kingdom
ACCIDENT / INCIDENT DETAILS
A contractor employed on the installation of new re-feed bins was using the sites Manitou Telehandler to ease a new bin into position for bolting down. The lifting hook suddenly failed causing the bin to drop suddenly.

• Luckily the bin was within the confines of a close fitting structure and only dropped a few inches into its intended resting place.

• The Crane Jib attachment had been tested by Allianz and a current test certificate was held on site. The total load on the hook was around 50% of the rated capacity of the Jib.

• Due to the design of the Jib it would not be readily obvious through visual inspection that there is a problem with the hook and eye.
