Do You Have A Critical Lift Plan?

Most people looking at that title would be wondering what I am talking about. However, if you are in the construction industry you will possibly know what it means.

Critical lifting of course relates to cranes and how they lift objects. They are ‘critical’ in certain circumstances. For instance when a particular lift with an overhead crane requires substantial planning due to:

  • Load weight or size constraints
  • Tight travel paths
  • Risk to surrounding equipment or
  • Risk to personnel

Under those circumstances a critical lift plan may be in order. The critical lift plan is put together so that a work team knows exactly what they are doing at any given time. The plan maps out:

  • load limitations
  • path sketches
  • team member assignments
  • emergency procedures

Without a critical lift plan you can guarantee that something will go wrong. Crane operation is a highly technical position which requires good training in the basic. You can get that basic training at ATS Heavy Equipment Training Schools.
