The Overhead Alliance is now offering a complimentary download of the Hoist Operator's Manual. This manual is ideal for the novice worker and can also be used as a refresher for even the most seasoned hoist user. The manual covers a wide range of products from manually operated chain hoists to heavy-duty electric hoists. Topics addressed include inspection, recommended practices, standards, maintenance, and many more.
Three Material Handling Industry of America (MHIA) Industry Groups—The Crane Manufacturers Association of America (CMAA), Hoist Manufacturers Institute (HMI) and Monorail Manufacturers Association (MMA)—formed the Overhead Alliance to promote the crane, hoist and monorail industries as alternative lifting and moving solutions that can reduce accidents, improve workplace health and safety, reduce product damage, improve workflow, lower costs and reduce environmental impact.
