Lifting & Rigging

A chain's strength is determined by its weakest link. Rigging is frequently the weak link in crane operations. A load's attachment to a crane can determine whether a lift is successful or results in a tragic accident. Additionally, because such massive and heavy items are lifted, lifting and rigging hazards & its related accidents sometime result in fatalities. Lifting and rigging incidents may lead to tragic events due to a minor error in judgement or a fleeting moment of inattention. There isn't much that can be done to stop a cargo from falling, and there isn't much time for people to get safely out of the way. Expensive cargo and equipment, including the crane itself, could be damaged or destroyed, and a co-worker could be hurt or killed due to Lifting and rigging hazards.
