Understanding Crane Capacity and its Determining Factors

When it comes to hoisting and rigging operations on construction sites, there are several factors that contribute to a successful and safe crane lift. This Safety Talk video will discuss one key factor, crane capacity, and how it’s affected by various components. The distance of the load from the crane is a crucial component in determining the crane’s capacity over distance, so it’s important to discuss with the crane operator the specifics of the load’s placement, weight, and distance from the crane.
