Benefits of using a PE to develop a below the hook lifting device

When it comes to developing a below the hook lifting device, it's important to ensure that the device is safe and capable of handling the intended load. OSHA recognizes that ASME compliant lifting devices are a part of a safe workplace. The ASME standards state that the device must be designed by a qualified person. A PE-stamped drawing provides documentation that demonstrates the design was accomplished by a qualified person.



5 Reasons to PE-stamp a BTH Lifting Device

Here are some of the key benefits of using a Professional Engineer (PE) for developing a below the hook lifting device:

  1. Safety: A PE has the knowledge and expertise to design a device that meets safety standards and regulations. This helps to ensure that the device is capable of safely lifting the intended load and that it will function properly in its intended use.

  2. Compliance: A PE can provide calculations and design drawings for the device that demonstrate compliance with industry standards and regulations. This helps to ensure that the device is acceptable for use in various industries and locations.

  3. Quality control: A PE can provide oversight during the manufacturing and testing process to ensure that the device is built according to the design specifications. This helps to ensure that the device is of high quality and capable of safely lifting the intended load.

  4. Cost savings: By using a PE to design and verify the device, companies can avoid costly mistakes and ensure that the device is designed and built correctly the first time. This can help to save money in the long run by reducing the need for costly repairs or replacements.

  5. Liability protection: Using a PE to design and verify a below the hook lifting device can provide liability protection in case of accidents or injuries caused by the device. This can help to protect the company and its employees in case of legal action.

Overall, using a PE to develop a below the hook lifting device can provide numerous benefits, helping to ensure that the device is safe, compliant, and effective in terms of both operation and cost. By using a PE, companies can ensure that the device is designed and built to meet industry standards and regulations and that it is capable of safely lifting the intended load.
