Lifting plans provide the contractor and customer with a clear picture of how items are to be secured for lifting operations.
Abbott Designs create lifting plans to visualise lifting procedures. Plans show securing points and bracing, as well as shackle and strop arrangements for forklift jibs or cranes. The lifting key identifies strop, shackle and jib types. For unconventional items or locations detailed photographs and measurements are taken to ensure an accurate graphical representation and a full understanding of lifting operations. To explain advanced procedures, lifting plans can include multiple stages and a variety of viewpoints.
