. In Italy, hazardous equipment designed to lift things and people – like cranes, self-propelled variable reach trucks, elevating work platforms, etc. – needs to be controlled based on mandatory periodic checks aiming to control safety levels based on the actual level of utilization. During the use phase, interventions as well as faults could occurred thus modifying operative conditions of the system. By analyzing incident occurred in last years, it could be outlined that such equipment present multiple causes of failure including organizational ones. Among the causes of accidents occurring on such equipment, a significant role is certainly covered by the lack of information provided on the management of said equipment. A more coordinated approach for risk prevention could be adopted if correct information will be available. Thus, the aim of the proposed work is to define and design an IOT (Internet of Things) platform for effectively managing data about the whole life cycle of a hazardous equipment aiming to coordinate inspection as well as maintenance activities. The entire management process of the equipment is allowed through the use of smart tag attached to the lifting equipment, capable of interacting both with the user and the inspector during control activities. The platform will adopt IOT technologies for accurately identifying the equipment; a web-based software will be designed to manage all data about its “fault and maintenance history”. Different type of maintenance activities could be carried out on the equipment through a coordinated approach to optimize costs.
