Re: Cranes not able to lift a load

Hi

"As my opinion is that a safety feature was altered and an LMI needs to re-inspect the crane and declare it safe for use". I agree with you.

If the rated capacity is 60t you may not exceed this amount (that would be a contravention of law).

Re: First aid kit vs my interpretation of Osha

Hi there

That would be correct, "the act does not directly specify that it must be accredited".

Inhouse training would not be illegal (obviously you would need to have a competent person with the knowledge skills & experience who conducts the training).

Good morning

Yes, it would be applicable the storage of flammable liquids.

SANS 54470-1:2017 would be applicable to Fire safety cabinets.

Your cabinet needs to comply with the abovementioned standards.

You would also need to comply with the prescriptions of the GSR.
