Cranes: Industry News

Reducing Crane Accidents Through Education

The Rigging Fundamentals course teaches workers how to safely rig loads for different lifting conditions. For example, a 5,000 lb load rigged for a low headroom lift close to the ceiling could potentially require chains rated at 25,000 lb or greater rather than 5,000 lb depending on the angle between the hook and the load. Acute angles may multiply lifting stresses by more than five times the actual weight of the load.
Training from Konecranes helps address the almost 60 percent of overhead crane accidents due to poor or improper rigging practices.
