Personal Platforms and Lifting Devices

When you use overhead and mobile cranes and want to make your lifing process simpler and safe, what do you use?

This company in Chattanooga, Tennessee use all type of lifting devices. They care about their safety so they brought in the professionals to inspect, tag and train on the proper use of these lifting devices. Throughout the morning crane operators roll in and out of the crane yard picking up spreader bars, adjustable lifters, pans and persoanl platforms.

Hiring a master rigger and NCCCO mobile crane operator helped to ensure proper lifting was accomplished and that everyone on the site understood about the proper ways to lift. During the inspection some minor items were noticed pertaining to pins for shackles, hand signal charts, shackles that were not moused, but overall a great group of riggers staying on top to minimize descrepancies. Great job Tomahawk Crane & Rigging.

Thank you Tomahawk Crane & Rigging for giving us the opportunity to inspect and train the operators and riggers on the proper techniques.

If you have mobile or overhead cranes, rigging devices, lifting devices, and want to be compliant with the required Periodic (Annual) inspections, contact Joe Crews at jcrews@cgsafetysolutions.com or call him directly at (336) 840-7589.

Carry Deck Mobile Crane Operator

What do you do when you need to lift something but your crane is too large to get in the space?

Get a smaller crane but still have the lifting power you need.

Last week was a great week sharing time with the newest trained Mobile Crane Carry Deck Operators in Shelby, NC. A shout to Clearwater Paper especially since they are the company that provides us with paper towels. What would we do without them?

Congratulations to all the attendees and graduates of the Mobile Crane Class.

Boom Truck Inspection

What is it you need to do each year to your mobile crane?

That’s right, inspection by a training qualified or certified mobile crane inspector. That was accomplished this week in a rock quarry. Some things were discovered to need attention and repair. Also, discovered was some mobile crane training due to improper wrapping of the wire rope back on the drum. This was noticed right away by the inspector and discussed with Point of Contact after completing the inspection.

Thank you everyone who gives us an opportuntiy to keep your mobile and overhead cranes in compliance with OSHA and ASME regulations and standards.
