TITLE
Safe Working Load (SWL) Classification
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN
United Kingdom
ACCIDENT / INCIDENT DETAILS
As a result of an incident investigation following the failure of a load bearing part, it was apparent that safe working load (SWL) identification could have misled the site operatives to work above the SWL for the equipment.

Although the lifting equipment was rated at 2 tonne, the beam it was working off was only 1 tonne.
