SCHEDULE 7(Subsections 336(1) and 343(1))Load Moment Indicator Systems

  • 1 A load moment indicator system installed on a category 4 lifting appliance shall

    • (a) use the same type of measuring units that the load radius chart uses;

    • (b) clearly indicate the measuring units used;

    • (c) give a clear and precise indication of

      • (i) the lifting capacity of the appliance,

      • (ii) the total weight suspended,

      • (iii) the elevated angle of the boom, and

      • (iv) the radius of the boom;

    • (d) be clearly visible so that an operator seated at the control position can easily read the indications during both day and night conditions;

    • (e) be resistant to magnetic influence, weather, shock and vibration;

    • (f) have a visual system that

      • (i) warns the operator when 85% of the appliance’s SWL has been reached, and

      • (ii) does not create an operational hazard; and

    • (g) have a visual and audible system in the interior of the cab and an exterior audible system that

      • (i) warns the operator when 98% of the appliance’s SWL has been reached,

      • (ii) does not create an operational hazard, and

      • (iii) in the case of the audible signal, is identifiable by the operator despite ambient and machinery noise.

  • 2 A load moment indicator system that is installed on a category 4 lifting appliance on a Canadian vessel that is not a restricted vessel shall

    • (a) give a clear and precise indication of the angles of heel and trim and of the reduced lifting capacity for those angles;

    • (b) be clearly visible so that an operator seated at the control position can easily read the indication during both day and night conditions;

    • (c) have an automatic emergency braking system that prevents freefall of the load without jolting in the event of overload; and

    • (d) have a manual control to bypass the automatic emergency braking system that is accessible to an operator seated at the control position and is protected against accidental operation.
