Why is Lift Planning Important?

When it comes to construction projects or other jobs that require the use of a mobile crane, lifting materials from one location to another is a deceptively complex task. To ensure that every lift is performed safely and correctly, a comprehensive lift plan should be completed before operating a mobile crane. As a leading provider of high-quality mobile crane rentals for all industries, the team at TNT Crane & Rigging knows why lift planning is important for every project. That is why we have provided some information to outline the importance of proper planning for every lift and how it can ensure that your project stays safe and on schedule.

3 Reasons Why Lift Planning is Important for Every Project

Every project site will feature different challenges, site elements, and other considerations. To ensure that you are sufficiently addressing these elements, a unique lift plan should be created before performing any lifts with a crane. While this may take some time, proper lift planning offers the following benefits to make up for it:

1. Identifying Hazards

Many project sites feature a variety of hazards that will need to be addressed before any work begins. A comprehensive lift plan can help to identify these hazards for everyone on the project site, increasing awareness and safety. Whether your site features numerous overhead obstructions, uneven terrain, or nearby power lines, a lift plan will address the hazards and provide information on how to navigate them. Lift plans can also provide procedures for hazardous weather conditions and other unexpected events to help minimize downtime.

2. Determining Your Project Requirements

Lift plans can help project managers determine how much lift capacity and lift height they need to get the job done. These plans also present an opportunity to take note of any unique features that are required such as rough-terrain traversal, extended outreach capabilities, or outriggers. By determining the required lift capacity, lift height, and other features, you can be sure that you are getting the correct mobile crane rental(s) for your project requirements.

3. Optimizing Processes

Lifts are far more complex than they appear. This complexity can make it difficult to know where to start or how to proceed after beginning the process. A detailed lift plan can ensure that operators and other personnel know what to do, when to do it, and how to get the job done right. This enhances productivity, safety, and quality by optimizing the lifting process and ensuring that there is no room for confusion.
