Consulting Services from Western Equipment

When it comes to hoisting and handling heavy loads, it is vital to have well-educated staff and management. For this reason, we offer training and consultation on proper rigging and lifting practices, and we can help to develop equipment policies that will keep your staff safe. Many of our customers are not previously acquainted with the use and maintenance of heavy-duty lifting and rigging equipment, so our safety consulting services are targeted at familiarizing customers with proper lifting practices and spotting safety hazards.

Benefits of Consulting on Rigging and Lifting

While the primary reason to consult with Western Equipment is for the safety of your staff and property, there are many other reasons to seek rigging and lifting consulting services. To get the most out of a piece of equipment, it is important to use it in the manner that it was designed to be used. If a web sling is used in a situation better suited to a chain sling, the web sling will wear out faster and could possibly break. It is also important to know how to properly care for lifting and rigging equipment to ensure its longevity.

Most lifting operations require people on the ground to signal the operators, and many jobs are likely to have bystanders. To protect workers from injury or death, the government has placed strict regulations on the operation of heavy lifting machinery. To meet these regulations, it is often required that operators take safety courses and receive consultation from licensed professionals. Find out how to best protect the health of your staff and keep your company free of lawsuits before operating any large lifting or rigging equipment.
