FULL TITLE: LIFTING EQUIPMENT INSPECTION
UNIT STANDARD: Not unit standard-aligned
DESCRIPTION: The objective of the lifting equipment inspection (LEI) course is to enable learners to inspect lifting equipment according to the Occupational Health and Safety Act. The course can also be presented in preparation of lifting machine inspection (LMI) registration/accreditation with ECSA, for candidates such as artisans, riggers, fitters and electricians at foreman or supervisory
level with around five years' experience.
DURATION: Full Training (Novice): 3 Days
COURSE CONTENT: Standards and code of practice
    We take the learners through the Code of Practice, the     Occupational Health and Safety Act, Mine Health and     Safety Act of 1996, standards, testing and examining,     construction, marking and identification, Safe Working     Load, Working Load Limit, proof load, mass and force,     force, stress and preferred numbers.
Hooks
    We discuss BS 2903, materials, types of hooks, grade     mark, proof testing, shank hooks, ramshorn hooks and     other types of hooks.
Chains, rings and links and chain slings
    We take learners through welded construction slings,     mechanically assembled slings, components with clevis     fittings, couple assembled components, rating chain     slings, testing chain slings, endless slings, multi-leg     slings, trigonometric rated slings, uniform load rated     slings, examining chain slings and marking.
Shackles and eyebolts
Stress and strain in lifting equipment
    We talk about tensile, compressive and shear forces,     stress and strain, tensile test, elasticity, Hooke’s law,     Young’s modulus, bending stresses and lifting beams     and spreader beams.
Examinations
Wire rope construction and wire rope slings
Textile slings
Lifting beams, spreaders and frames
Hand-operated chain blocks
Lifting and pulling machines using a gripping action
     on the wire rope

    We talk about types of lifting and pulling machines,     principles for the selection of lifting and pulling     machines, information which should be exchanged     between the user and the designer or supplier,
     marking,storage and handling.
Beam clamps
    We discuss types of beam clamp, principles for the     selection of beam clamp, information which should be     exchanged between the user and the designer or     supplier, legal requirements, marking, storage and     handling, in-service inspection and maintenance and     safe use of beam clamps.
Travelling girder trolleys
Hand operated chain lever hoists
Plate handling clamps
Man-made fiber roundslings
Load testing*
    *Load testing can only be carried out by persons who     meet the legal requirements of the Ohs Act Driven     Machinery Regulation 18 sub regulation 5.
ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS: The company and learners must meet the conditions of the training requirements before theory training can be given.

Grade 10 certificate or equivalent qualification assumed
to be in place.
A pocket calculator is required for each learner for the
duration of the course.
Learners requiring Lifting Machine Inspection (ECSA
registration) must have hydraulic and electrical
background experience and training.

For any queries regarding the requirements and conditions of lifting equipment inspection training and preparation for LMI registration with ECSA, contact our skills development advisor for more information.

 
  In-house accreditation solutions

First of all, companies who provide their own training need to be accredited as a registered training provider. Such companies may require assistance in obtaining these accreditations through the appropriate SETAs. To this end, HRETD offers an advisory service to help companies familiarise themselves with the procedures, legislative requirements and legal documentation for successful accreditation. For more information on provider accreditation, see certificate outsourcing solutions. More...
