Why Our Riggers Are the Best in the Business
Rigging heavy commercial and industrial equipment is not for the fainthearted. This is a job for people and companies with nerves of steel, since it offers little room for error. A slight misjudgment can mean the difference between a successful mission and broken cargo worth millions of dollars. The stakes here are high enough that even the life of the rigger is at risk when he is at work. This is why highly stringent measures and rules govern the rigging world, ensuring that only qualified companies can compete for business.
The success of any single rigging job massively relies on the state of equipment and technology used by the company. We sometimes focus so much on the metalwork, technology, and lever involved in rigging that we forget the most important piece of the puzzle required to make the job complete - the rigger. The importance of the people operating the rigging cranes is too often overlooked. We at Southwest Industrial Rigging fully understand the importance of the rigger and attribute most of our success to them. They are among the reasons why we are one of the best rigging companies in America. What makes our riggers different? What makes them successful at what they do? Here are reasons why our riggers are the best in the business:
Besides handpicking all our riggers, we take them through a rigorous training program to make sure they are well equipped to properly handle the jobs delegated to them. They then serve as assistants within the company as they amass the skills and dexterity required to operate cranes and other rigging equipment. You can expect nothing short of the best from the lot.
We don’t just employ novices and deploy them to the field. We only send out professionals we have personally trained, and are confident that they are experienced enough to get the job done.
Rigging is a teamwork task. For a project to be successful, the rigger operating the crane has to work hand in hand with others on the ground. They have to be in perfect synchrony because this a game of margins and any slight misunderstanding can be detrimental. We have instilled in them a commitment to teamwork. It is one of the standout company ethos here at Southwest Industrial Rigging and it really pays off.
Our riggers are always mindful of their own safety and the safety of the cargo they handle. Therefore, they work with care and the highest level of professionalism to minimize any chances of accidents when at work. Considering that they always work with top quality equipment, cases of incidents and accidents are almost unheard of here at Southwest Industrial Rigging.
