Every project demands a unique approach based on the type of load, its weight and dimensions, and the specific conditions of the lifting operation. Our crew conducts pre-lift meetings to discuss potential hazards and safety protocols, and we review the crane itself and all of the rigging equipment (slings, shackles, hooks, etc.)
When we asses projects and the loads we will lift, we analyze weight, size, shape, and center of gravity to select the right rigging equipment and configure it to ensure a stable and balanced lift.
Once we asses the load, our rigging crew organizes necessary types of slings and hardware depending on the load and working conditions. The crew then thoroughly inspects the condition of all rigging components.
Next we configure the rigging setup by attaching the slings and hardware to the load to evenly distribute the weight and maintain stability during the lift. Experience and know-how are critical when choosing hitch configurations (vertical, choker, or basket hitches) to ensure secure connection.
When machines and hardware start moving, communication is paramount and attention is paid to the angles at which the slings are attached, as improper angles can significantly reduce the load capacity of the rigging system. Our crane operators and their rigging crew maintain clear and constant communication to ensure a coordinated lift.
