Stretched Shackle

This shackle comes from a customer that I visited once per month. We have had many discussions concerning rigging in that location of the plant. Now that someone has dropped a load and broken a foot, I am being asked to help implement a rigging policy & procedures. I was just commenting this morning on Linked-In about safety violations and what the company should do concerning termination or discipline actions.

I am looking forward to the opportunity to evaluate each lift using the crane, slings and rigging hardware. Pictures, hazard analysis, job safety analysis, written procedures and most of all, continued rigging training for the entire department involved with this implementation.
