When climbing bridge loads, in particular, loads placed on trailers or PLS vehicles; strict
safety procedures should be followed.
Use of Ladders When Module Opening
Position the module access ladder to the side of the parallel module where the sling is to
be attached to the module lifting beam.
Ensure that the hooked ladder off stands have securely engaged over the chord of the
bridge module and are laterally restrained by the deck unit hinge brackets.
Extend the ladder to a suitable working length and angle.
Ascend the ladder and once at a height suitable for connecting the sling, lean against the
ladder and using two hands connect the sling to the module lifting beam hook.
