A crushed chain link
This is another frequent issue when working with chain-based hoist systems or something similar. If you carry a lot of heavy loads throughout project hours, it’s simple for chains to become crushed or broken without anyone even knowing it.
This is a great reason to make regular chain inspection and maintenance a regular practice in these situations. Remember that a crushed chain is very different from a completely broken chain link and may be more difficult to spot, particularly from a distance.
Bent or cracking hooks
A hook is created to hold load weight in a particular and precise direction; other than this, it’s a comparatively delicate component.
Misapplied weight can bend a hook, which also compromises its internal integrity and may increase the chances of it breaking off in the future.
Hooks need to be inspected often to make sure they have not been subtly damaged. While looking for the bends, workers should keep an eye out for telltale cracks, too.
