Lesson Learned/Best Practice
JED Offered a rigging training at the job site to ensure workers are certified. This was beneficial to the job to make sure that anyone using the crane was knowledgeable on rigging material up safely using the tower crane. Each person that participated in the training received a certification card that they keep on their person. The techniques and skills that were learned will not only help the guys on this job but other jobs as well.
Suggested Actions for Future Projects
The rigging and signaling class at the job sites should be a good stepping stone to ensure overall safety and quality of work when lifting any type of heavy materials in high traffic areas.
