We have all heard the phrase... "A chain is only as strong as its weakest link". When it comes to crane operations, rigging can often be that weak link. How a load is attached to a crane can make the difference between a successful lift and an unfortunate accident. Crane-related accidents can often be deadly, due to the large and heavy loads that are lifted. Once a load falls not much can be done to stop it, and there is little time for people to move safely out of the way. OSHA has been so concerned about crane safety that they have recently revised their crane safety regulations for the first time in almost 40 years!
