Our Rigging Process

When you hire Premier Cranes & Rigging, you’re hiring a team of rigging experts that deliver innovative lifting solutions which adhere to the highest safety standards. Our team of riggers are highly qualified and have experience working with cranes that have a lifting capacity of 5 tonnes to 450 tonnes. Some of the work delivered as part of our rigging services include:

Developing A Comprehensive Lifting Plan

Before our team of riggers and operators arrive on site , the very first step in the Premier process is collaborating with you to understand your unique lifting requirements. With your input, our team of engineers will develop a comprehensive lift plan including the necessary lifting equipment, which will then be reviewed by our field team to ensure it can be practically applied onsite. The lifting gear is always inspected and tagged before the lift at our facility

Moving in the cranes

Once our rigging team arrives on the job site, their first thing they do is ensure there is a safe location to set up the crane as per the lift plan. Once confirmed, we organise transport such as semi trucks that carry the load or lifting equipment.

Next, the rigging team will mark out the bogmats in order to safely set up the crane. Once the crane is set up, the rigging team inspects the lifting gear, load and lift plan to ensure it is safe to lift the load and all compliances are met.

Monitoring Environmental Conditions

Before, during and after the job, our team will monitor the site and environmental conditions for any risks or hazards that may jeopardise the safety of our personnel or other contractors.

Frequently Asked Questions About Our Rigging Services

What does a rigger do?

A Rigger moves heavy objects through utilising cranes and rigging gear such as chain blocks and winches. Riggers may also assemble temporary and permanent structures such as structural steel and precast panels. If the Rigger is classed as intermediate they are licensed to hook up, rotate and install Precast concrete structures, move and assemble pre–cast facades and panels on buildings under construction. They can also perform ‘dual lifts’ meaning they can use more than one crane to perform a lift when required. Read more about a Riggers role here.
