Priorities when providing  Lifting and Hauling Services?

Safety Is Always The Top Priority:

When it comes to construction sites, safety is always a top priority. Safety of construction sites comes down to proper personnel training, efficient and well maintained equipment and a clean, relaxed, happy and healthy environment.

Training of operator and support personnel:

Training and competency of the operator and support personnel in the workplace plays a key role in health and safety.

During long and intense operations, lifting and hauling equipment may deteriorate. Pre-operation and regular in-operation inspections will give you the confidence that your lifting and hauling equipment is safe. Well-trained and experienced operators are observant and may detect problems in equipment before they break down and cause serious accidents.  Operator competency and competencies of support personnel, plays a huge role in ensuring health and safety.

Load Management:

Lifting and hauling equipment used for varied tasks undergo various load-time cycles.  Sometimes equipment may be used close to 100% of its working load limit (WLL), whilst at other times it may be used for lifting very light loads. The durations of the load cycles are important .   Modern lifting and hauling equipment are well -equipped with computerized load management systems which also record the load-time history of the equipment.  The load-time history of the equipment should be referred to when preparing inspection and maintenance schedules.
