Bringing the various tasks under the same team gives us the advantage of reducing scheduling hassles and conflicts that can ultimately lead to the downtime of your machinery.

RiggingInitially, our project manager collects any important details and information from the client before formulating a plan that will best suit the client’s requirements, schedule, and needs. After a plan is devised, they will discuss with the client the plan, timeline, and resources to be used, and upon approval, coordinate with the client, schedule the team and equipment, and schedule the time and dates to begin and complete the work.

Determining the safe working load of all components used for the rigging operation is a very important parameter to ensure safe and successful completion of the rigging project.

Our riggers are well aware of the complexities of the supporting tasks and are potentially equipped to work in hazardous environments.

Our top concern in all our projects is both the safety of the equipment to be rigged and the safety of the personnel. Our team of safety engineers perform a pre-rigging inspection after all the arrangements for the lifting and assembling of the equipment has been completed.

The pre-rigging inspection is performed within a clearly defined time, following and maintaining the guidelines of our Pre-Rigging Inspection Checklist.

Pre-Rigging Checklist

Maintaining the Pre-Rigging Inspection Checklist is easy, simple, quick and convenient and provides the following advantages:

  • Safety and compliance of the equipment and the personnel
  • Decrease in the overall money spent on maintenance of the equipment
  • Better management of the equipment
  • Increases communication and accelerates flow of information within the team
  • Provides ease of maintenance of facts and records; also helps in the making of detailed reports


The Pre-Rigging Inspection consists of the following steps:

  • The first step is to perform a visual inspection of the equipment and note any comments
  • The loading weight of the equipment should be checked, i.e, either with the help of the crane or on the basis of the shipping documents
  • The certified slings of the right capacity and size are selected and are then checked thoroughly for breakages, heat damages, or irregularity (if any)
  • The slings with the help of D-clamps are then connected to the load after checking the capacity of the slings required
  • Once the D-clamps and slings have been tightened, shackle pins are checked to ensure they are tightly fixed to equipment, which ensures safety
  • Traffic is guided if rigging work is on the road or includes mobilization


Our highly qualified professionals have many years of experience in the field managing projects that require complex rigging. They are certified and trained to always have safety as their number one priority.
