It is imperative that a qualified ‘Slinger Banksman’ is in charge to direct and oversee the operations.
When KEE require the help of an external company to lift our bigger units on to the back of low loaders ,a 40 tonne or 50 tonne crane is required. When this takes place, the Slinger Banksman has to ensure that the lifting plan for the unit is carried out as specified. Any error in the lifting process can cause uneven pressure loads on to parts of the equipment so it is imperative that a qualified ‘Slinger Banksman’ is in charge to direct and oversee the operation. The Slinger Banksman guides the Crane Operator to where they need to be positioned whilst ensuring no other people come into the lifting area when a lift is taking place. Each lift involves positioning the lifting slings in the correct place and being in constant contact with the Crane Operator to ensure the lift is safe to complete.
We all at KEE look forward to seeing Adrian, Antonio and Luis out in the yard putting their training in to practice!
