Could anyone point me to the design and/or OSHA requirements for a lifting frame? It is a gantry design made of stainless tube steel. It has one purpose and that is to lift a hinged section of conveyor out of the water for inspection. There are no trollies on this frame, just a fixed lifting point with an electric hoist attached. I need to provide a load rating for this frame, but I'm not sure what the FOS should be, and if there are other requirements. Any help would be appreciated.
