WARNING
Observe the following precautions during the loading process:
Ensure that winch cables are inspected in accordance with TB 43-0142 or serious
injury to personnel may occur.
Extreme caution should be exercised during any operation on a slope or serious
injury to personnel may occur.
A ground guide (spotter) must stand off curbside of semitrailer and maintain visual
contact with the winch operator. The spotter must observe cables, snatch blocks,
shackles, and payload position during loading or serious injury to personnel may
occur.
Do not overload tractor winches. Know the ratings of the winches being used and
the existence of any protection devices (such as shear pins)
or serious injury to personnel may occur.
All ground personnel must stand clear of winch cables except when handling or
serious injury to personnel may occur.
During winch-on operations on a downgrade, the payload must be restrained from
the front with some other vehicle to prevent possible loss of control of the payload
causing serious injury to personnel.
At no time during loading operations while the payload is being pulled on with
winches should personnel be on the semitrailer platform or serious injury or death
to personnel may occur.
Always wear leather gloves when handling winch cable. Never allow cable to run
through hands or serious injury to personnel may occur.
