Monorail hoists.

(1) No attempt must be made with a monorail hoist to lift or move an object by a side pull, unless designed for that purpose.
(2) A stop must be provided at all switches and turntables which will prevent the trolley from running off should the switch be turned or be left in the open position.
(3) All monorail hoists operating on swivels must be equipped with one or more safety catches which will support the load should a suspension pin fail. All trolley frames must be safeguarded against spreading.
(4) Rail stops must be provided at the ends of crane runways. Such rail stops must extend at least as high as the centers of the wheels.
(5) All monorail hoists must have the rated capacity posted on both the hoist and the rail.
