Spotlight on Rigging Safety

Safety is at the core of all our services here at L&M Crane—and rigging safety is no different.

Whether your lifting job requires the use of cranes, hoists, or other machinery, following rigging safety guidelines and best practices is an integral part of completing a lift safely and successfully.

Rigging Safety Planning & Strategy

When planning for a lift, our riggers view each and every job as unique; whether the lift will take place in a shipyard, at a construction site, or elsewhere.

We look at all the distinct variables of your lifting job—this includes any potential obstacles that could pose as a risk to the safety of all personnel involved in the lift. We then account for these potential obstacles when strategizing for safety in our rigging operations. Our professionals are equipped with the skill and know-how to perform all rigging operations safely and successfully.
