Abstract This study analyses the results concerning cranes in general and travelling cranes in particular, as well as telescopic hoists and elevation fittings, because they account for an important part of the occupational loss ratio. A statistical study was carried out concerning lifts used as platforms for the elevation of people. These are frequently used for lifting workers by means of cranes and lift trucks which are not an integral part of the equipment. Suggestions are given for companies about the main needs related to the adjustment, acquisition and use of this equipment in order to prevent associated accident risks. Topics: approval; comment on law; comment on standard; cranes; evaluation of equipment; legal aspects; lifting equipment; materials handling; mobile cranes; Spain.
