Challenge. Lift safety benefits from having the crane operator able to verify that load on his hook is known and free in all directions. In some cases, however, the object being lifted may have hidden corners or be of an unconfirmed weight, increasing the level of lift risk and possibly creating some operator discomfort.
Solution. Install a load display (Fig 6) to eliminate a possible unknown and improve the probability of lift success.
Results. The load display provides the crane operator the information he or she needs to make a safe lift.
